So what the f**k are poppers anyway? Poppers—amyl nitrites—are used recreationally in nightlife / LGBTQ+ settings for their quick, rush-like effects that relax the muscles (particularly the muscles in and around the anus). Remember if you’re using poppers to NEVER ingest the liquid (highly dangerous), only inhale the vapors.
Welcome! Queering Harm Reduction is an LGBTQ-oriented education project focusing on reducing the harms associated with stigmatized behaviors, from substance use to sexual activity and beyond. QHR believes in radical transparency of information and in providing the space for people to manage their autonomy, health, and well-being—be it physical, mental, emotional, social—without engaging in value judgments of behaviors.
