Impulse Group Orlando launched in 2015 and has never stopped building on to their reach every since. From their first sponsorship of Orlando Gay Days to creating a paradise on the Disappearing Island, Impulse Group Orlando has always been able to find new and innovative ways to bring the community together. Following the Pulse Nightclub tragedy, Impulse Group Orlando was able to aid and assist with relief efforts at a time their community needed them most. Impulse Group Orlando is working to benefit not just those looking to prevent new infections but also help those living with HIV and other STIs with their one of a kind A.W.A.R.E program
WHY WE DO IT
Florida ranks second in the nation among new HIV cases, and third when it comes to new AIDS cases. 1 in 4 new cases of HIV are among those ages 13-24. Orange County is third in the state in the number of HIV and AIDS cases. That is why we do it. Impulse Orlando is dedicated to empowering individuals to take charge of their sexual health in an effort to reduce these numbers.
The Orlando chapter of an international organization, Impulse Group, dedicated to the advancement of safe sex awareness, prevention and practice among young, sexually active gay men between the ages of 18-35. Our goal is to bring Orlando provocative, thought provoking, and impactful messaging, marketing and events promoting awareness and education on safe sex to the gay community.
AWARE is here to help. AWARE (Achieving Wellness And Reaching Excellence) is a 100% free & confidential 6-week support group that provides practical help and knowledge for men 18-30 to manage their HIV diagnosis, gain confidence, build resilience and make informed decisions around the various issues that may confront them after a HIV diagnosis.
