Safe Sex Guide
This guide was created by Morgan M Page at The 519 Church Street
Community Centre. But we’d like to take a moment to thank all those folks
and projects that inspired us! Firstly, special thanks to Christina Strang,
creator of the original The Happy Transsexual Hooker – Canada’s first safer
sex resource for trans sex workers and trans women. We’d also like to thank
the Gay/Bi/Queer Trans Men’s Working Group and everyone else involved
with the creation of PRIMED: The Back Pocket guide for Transmen & The
Men Who Dig Them. These two guides were the primary inspiration for this
project, and we owe them so much! Another source of amazing inspiration
was the Safer Sex for Transguys: a Guide for the Whole Spectrum guide
created by James Cullen. Special thanks to everyone who looked over the
guide, edited it, or gave suggestions, including Aurora Jade Pichette, Kyle
Scanlon, Kate N., Danielle W., Rebecca Hammond, and Christina Strang.
