The Project X Team from Gay/MSM Program at the WA AIDS Council adopts a peer education model in our health promotion, outreach and education. Using a peer-based model, our officers are trained and educated in the sexual health issues surrounding HIV/AIDS, STIs, sexuality, safer sex, and drug use, and thereby become relative experts in these subjects compared to their peers. By taking action in various activities such as workshops and forum discussions as well as active and passive outreach (online and at MSM venues), they attempt to generate change in the knowledge, attitudes, norms, beliefs, and behaviour of their peers.

Peer support is based on the fact that people, especially marginalised groups, often seek out their peers when they are experiencing some frustration, worry or concern. Peer helpers are trained and supervised to provide any or all of the following:

  • listening and understanding;
  • friendship and support;
  • decision making assistance;
  • role modelling
  • problem-solving assistance; and
  • referral to professionals


All the Programs here are peer-based. Feel free to have a browse and do contact us if you need further information.

Peer Programs run by the Project X team

Mensline is an information and referral telephone service for men who have sex with other men but do not identify as gay. Its primary role is to ensure the best sexual health outcomes for these men. The operators can give information about safe sex and safe places to meet other like minded men.



We offer a variety of workshops run by gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men. The Workshops are about exploring our sexuality and making the most of our choices.


Gay Indigenous

Indigenous MSM (men who have sex with men) and Gay Men’s Education’ project is an education project, though it has a strong element of peer information and support.


Beat Outreach

This project was designed to help guys make safer choices. There are other options – sex on premises venues and internet cruising – that are safer than beat use.
