BC Gay Men's Health Summit 2013: Delving into the pros and cons of online dating

Issues about internet use, risky activity, and sexuality have been addressed in numerous articles, ranging from worries about online victimization to fears about sexually transmitted infections and hookup apps like Grindr. But how much should we truly be concerned about online dating?

That's something that Maggie MacAulay, an SFU communications PhD candidate who is working on a dissertation about online dating and HIV–prevention among gay men, has been taking a closer look at. MacAulay was part of a panel addressing issues impacting gay men's health at the 2013 B.C. Gay Men's Health Summit on November 7.
