What is Cheers Queers?


Cheers Queers is a project of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. Heavy alcohol use is a driver for HIV infection in San Francisco – not to mention things like hangovers, blackouts and injuries. We want to be able to have fun – and enjoy alcohol if we choose to – but in a way that makes us healthier and happier!

Cheers Queers is a social marketing campaign that shares messages about drinking more safely to help people have a good time when they go out. It is NOT a campaign to try to get people to stop drinking or not drink. Cheers Queers shares information on this website about how to prevent problems and reduce the harms that can be caused by drinking too much; a questionnaire that people can take to assess their drinking; and, how to get involved in a one-session Stonewall Project counseling and risk assessment session.
