An intrepid, documentary journey into the hidden world of modern, urban gay life. Chemsex refers to the use of drugs in a sexual context. A secret world where people hide their addiction in plain sight, living in a cycle of extreme pleasure and pain, validation and isolation. "Excellent but scarily sobering documentary." (queerguru.com) In hidden basements, bedrooms and bars across London, CHEMSEX exposes a dark side to modern gay life. Traversing an underworld of intravenous drug use and weekend-long sex parties, it tells the story of several men struggling to make it out of 'the scene' alive - and one health worker who has made it his mission to save them.
