Research Opportunities

Le français à suivre

Research can help improve the health and wellness of guys into guys. It can inform policy, help service providers increase their ability to care for GBT2Q guys, and provide a way for our community to feel heard. 

The purpose of this webpage is to direct community members to projects that may be of interest to them. This page is updated frequently, so check back often.

La recherche peut contribuer à améliorer la santé et le bien-être des gars qui aiment les gars. Elle peut éclairer les politiques, aider les prestataires de services à accroître leur capacité à prendre soin des gars GBT2Q et à fournir à notre communauté un moyen de se faire entendre. 

L'objectif de cette page web est d'orienter les membres de la communauté vers des projets susceptibles de les intéresser. Cette page est mise à jour fréquemment, alors consultez-la souvent.

We party. We play. It's time to have our say. Take the PnP survey nowThe Gay Men’s Sexual Health Alliance is a network of HIV/AIDS service organizations that champion GBTQ2S  men’s health across Ontario. We believe that guys who party n play deserve access to the information, skills, and support they need to reduce harm and enjoy good health. We're starting our work on PnP by asking guys like you...“How can we help?"  

Taking a few minutes to complete this survey will help us improve support & resources for guys across Ontario who PnP, including communities like yours.

Survey on COVID-19 and Sexuality

A researcher from the University of Toronto is looking for participants for a study on changes in sexual behaviours among transgender and cisgender, gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM) since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. During these difficult times, while social/physical distancing guidelines are in place, it’s important that we explore whether and how GBMSM might be meeting their sexual needs. Our hope is to find ways to best support our community, which might be affected greatly by the mental, physical, financial, and sexual impacts of the pandemic.

To participate, you need to be 18 years old and currently living in Canada. Find out more at the following link: https://bit.ly/SexAndCOVID.

If you have any questions about the study, please do not hesitate to contact max.charest@mail.utoronto.ca or his supervisor, Dr. J. Roy Gillis at roy.gillis@utoronto.ca.
