Birmingham LGBT Sexual Health services is a community partner of Umbrella Health (University Hospitals Birmingham, NHS) and is committed to providing quality accessible and culturally competent services for all sections of the LGBT community.
Our specialist South Asian & Middle Eastern MSM Sexual Health and Well being service is delivered by our South Asian & Middle Eastern Sexual Health Outreach Worker. This dedicated role is here to provide ‘one to one’ support which includes signposting, referrals, information and guidance, with a focus on enabling access to appropriate sexual health and well being services.
MSM is a grouping term we refer to as ‘men who have sex with men’ but this does not exclude anyone who does not relate to this but still may identify as a gay, bi, trans, queer or questioning man.

As South Asian and Middle Eastern MSM and gay, bi, trans, queer or questioning men we may experience a range of issues including pressures to get married, forced marriage, honour-based violence, stigma, prejudice, racism, homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.
There may often be a lack of understanding around various types of sexuality and gender identities often stigmatised from our own culture and communities. These conflicts in relation to culture, faith and religion can lead to further isolation, anxiety and stress.
At Birmingham LGBT, we offer a safe, supportive, confidential, private and non-judgmental well being service that is person centered focused.
We are here to listen and support you. We are here for you.
One of the main benefits of this service is being able to talk to someone from a South Asian background who can listen to your concerns which may be related to cultural conflicts.
We understand that for some people talking to another South Asian person may not be helpful or appropriate, which is why we have a diverse Health Promotion Team that is inclusive of LGBT+ people and workers that identify as LGBT allies.
We can offer regular well being ‘one to one’s’ to listen to your concerns around sexuality, faith, culture, and the impact this has on you, or any other general topics you need to discuss. https://blgbt.org/wellbeing-support-service/
We can listen to your concerns and where appropriate we can refer or signpost you to our specialist main services which may help such as Peer Mentoring, Domestic Abuse and Counselling.
