David Stuart ✟

Social Worker & Chem Sex Expert

David Stuart was a social worker, community activist, and chemsex expert.

David was the first to name and identify Chemsex as an emerging gay cultural phenomenon. He developed the world’s first chemsex support services, and he fought relentlessly for greater chemsex awareness by encouraging and stimulating cultural dialogue and discussion within our international gay, bi and Queer communities. He supported international governments and communities to manage the cultural phenomenon from a place of kindness, sex positivity and cultural competence. Sadly, in the beginning of 2022 David Stuart died, leaving us heartbroken for the loss of a great man whose work saved countless lives. For those that would like to know more about David, we would suggest to read the novel ‘A Loud Exhaust’. Click here to download his book.
