Men’s Prevention Specialist (Lead)
Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention
My name is Garfield Durrant, pronouns are he/him/his. I’m the Men’s Prevention Specialist at the Black Coalition for AIDS Prevention (Black CAP). In my present role at Black CAP, I’m responsible for the development and delivery of prevention interventions for self-identified African, Caribbean and Black men (trans, cis, and other men), who also identify as gay, bi, queer, asexual, and/or as guys who are into/or have sex with guys (ACB gbMSM). I’ve supported the development and implementation of interventions for ACB gbMSM. I’m currently a member of the Priority Population Networks (PPN) — the Gay Men’s Sexual Health Alliance (GMSH) and the African and Caribbean Council on HIV/AIDS in Ontario (ACCHO). I have a holistic understanding of HIV/AIDS, STI’s and hepatitis C, sexual health, substance use and harm reduction, sexualized violence and homophobia/heterosexism/transphobia prevention, and anti-oppression work, population health, and health promotion strategies. I’m very honored to be a part of this important work and its meaningful impact.
