HIV/STI Testing

Get Tested. Know Your Status.

Our test counselors are all trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary and/or people of color. We are trained to provide confidential and insightful testing sessions, where you will walk away understanding more than you came with. We are also trained to link you to essential support services, like medical care, housing, and food assistance. We believe that achieving good health and wellness is not just about what happens in a clinical setting, but about what happens in your whole life.

We offer FREE HIV/STI testing throughout Columbus.
