    A new survey will aim to capture the experiences of gay and bisexual men with the drug GHB — also known as G, GBL, or Gina. Evidence suggests there could be more hazards associated with it than previously thought.

    Following three years of reporting on this drug, its effects, and the reasons people take it, BuzzFeed News has teamed up with Channel 4 in the UK to make a documentary about what G is doing to this community. As part of the Dispatches series, the film will include the results of this survey to uncover the true scale of the issue.

    The survey, produced with the Terrence Higgins Trust, is completely anonymous and takes less than two minutes. No one's name, details, or identity will be known or used for any purposes.

    If you have further experiences or problems arising from G that you wish to share in confidence, please email patrick.strudwick@buzzfeed.com or katie@truevisiontv.com.
