July Research Lounge Next Week!

Join us for a discussion about Sexual health research among gay/bi/queer men
Tuesday, July 25 2017. 6:00 to 7:30PM Fabarnak, 519 Church St., Toronto

Sexual health services for gay/bi/queer men are simple! Not?
HIV is the greatest concern for gay/bi/queer men! Not?
We need more data on gay/bi/queer man! Not?
What is your experience accessing sexual health services as a gay/bi/queer man?

Let’s discuss our experience navigating sexual health services. We encourage everyone to read the article “Sexual Healthcare Preferences among Gay and Bisexual Men: A Qualitative Study in San Francisco, California” by Kimberly and colleagues prior to our gathering. The text can be found at http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0071546. We will be using the article to provide context and guide conversation; we will not be reading the article during the session.

This month’s hosts are the Investigaytors — a group of young queer men in Toronto who meet weekly to learn about community-based HIV and gay men’s health research. Over the past year, the Investigaytors have been conducting preliminary research to set up the first periodic health survey for gay men in Ontario. Our facilitators will be Nathan Gibson, a fourth year undergraduate student studying Neuroscience, Public Health, and Bioethics at the University of Toronto; and Mac Stewart, a recent graduate in Sexual Diversity Studies and English from U of T.
