Portesi, David. (2014, October). A Health Services Needs Assessment of Gay and Bisexual Men Living in the Fraser Region. Presented at the Gay Men's Health Summit, Vancouver, Canada. Using STOP HIV funding, HIM conducted a community consultation in 2011. More than 200 guys were interviewed and 800 completed an online survey. The findings were clear: HIM was on the right path, but we needed to increase engagement of more diverse and underserved populations, including young gay men, men who use substances and men from diverse ethno-cultural backgrounds. The recommended tool: the internet. Between March and May of 2014, HIM launched an on-line and clinic-based survey and three regional community consultation forums to gather quantitative and qualitative information from gay and bi men living in the Fraser Health region. David will share his findings and the resulting project recommendations which will be used to inform HIM and FHA planners regarding service development for gay and bi men in the Fraser Health region, including but not limited to service locations, service mix, and issues related to cultural competency and accessibility. While we often refer to gay men or the gay community, there is no monolithic descriptor for this population. Gay men are like other communities of interest where there are more differences than similarities. In order to communicate with the maximum number of gay men, HIM and other organizations will be required to adapt to technological shifts in communications, while navigating issues pertaining to the many sub-populations within the community.
