Hi again LoneWolf, I hope you're doing well....

I seldom respond to follow-up posts, but you asked whether Triangle Project is planning to roll out services on a national level. To date the organisation has been active predominantly in the greater Cape Town area but over the next five years Triangle Project will extend a presence into the Western Cape Province. The organisation remains regional.

There are however LGBT organisations in other provinces that specialise either in direct services or advocacy for gay rights. Those that offer services differ in what services they offer. At this point I am not aware of any other LGBT organisation in SA offering a support group for people living with HIV but I think OUT (in Pretoria) may be planning to commence such a group.

I'm curious: have you tried the HIV peer forum here on Health24? If yes, did you find other gay or lesbian people there?
