Abstract
The Gay Community Periodic Survey data records levels of safe and unsafe sexual practice in a broad cross-sectional sample of gay and homosexually active men. Men were recruited at gay community events and venues in Canberra in 2003. Survey questions focused on anal intercourse and oral sex, the use of condoms, the nature of sexual relationships, HIV testing practice and serostatus, aspects of social attachment to gay community, recreational drug use and a range of demographic items including sexual identity, age, education, occupation and ethnicity. In the main, to facilitate as direct a comparison as possible, the questions asked in 2003 were the same as those asked in the previous survey; however, some additional questions were included in the 2003 survey to address issues of using the internet to find sex partners, sexual health testing, and drug use and injecting drug use. Kind of Data: Survey. Time Dimensions: Repeated cross-sectional study. Sample Population: 255 gay and homosexually-active men from Canberra. Sampling Procedures: Participants were recruited at SpringOUT Festival Fair Day, and two gay community venues. 307 men were asked to complete the survey and 255 did so. Method of Data Collection: Self-completion. http://csrh.arts.unsw.edu.au/research/publications/gcps/
