While COVID-19 continues to impact the lives of everyone in Canada and around the world, we know that the pandemic has created unique pressures on the health and well-being of gay, bi, queer and trans men, and Two-Spirit and non-binary people (GBT2Q). Even before COVID-19, our communities have been facing significant mental, social, and sexual health challenges, which have been negatively impacted by physical distancing and the pandemic’s disruption to health services that we rely on, such as testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
In order to better understand how the pandemic has affected GBT2Q people across Canada, Community-Based Research Centre – in partnership with the Ontario HIV Treatment Network – is launching a national special COVID-19 edition of our Sex Now survey! However, to address these issues, we need your help: can you spare some time to fill out the survey and share your thoughts?
If you’re interested in learning more about the COVID-19 edition of Sex Now, please visit HERE.
For more information on partnering with us, please contact Ben Klassen, Sex Now Research Manager: [email protected]
Recruitment for this special edition of Sex Now will continue until early September to allow enough time for people to respond. We deeply appreciate the time and effort you have put in to make your voice heard – improving the response to COVID-19 in our communities is only made possible thanks to your input.
