"Q" program volunteers, led by a staff member, undertake themed outreach activities to promote safer sex and to recruit and promote The Q Austin's events and activities. Peer outreach may consist of team interventions targeting groups of young men accessing settings frequented by young gay and bisexual men to promote safer sex. This includes "bar zaps" at local bars and interventions at community events such as Austin Pride Festival, Queerbomb! and University of Texas Pride Week. Peers who conduct outreach also play a critical role in recruiting MSM for HIV testing and Core Group registration. Through collaboration with the Testing and Linkage to Care program, volunteers are able to reduce barriers for MSM in community venues who wish to know their HIV status.
