CBRC—along with our partners Egale Canada and the Enchanté Network—is currently conducting a national survey [link to survey] to discover the many ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted 2SLGBTQQIA+ people. This survey will shine a light on the particular challenges our communities face while helping other queer and trans organizations better advocate for new resources and policy measures to tackle the disease.

To kick things off, we spoke with several 2SLGBTQQIA+ people about the ways in which COVID-19 has impacted them and their communities. Read their stories and share yours!
