Representation Matters, Especially When it Comes to Sexual Health Access and Awareness

When it comes to Two-Spirit and gay, bisexual, trans, queer and questioning (GBTQ+) Indigenous folks being represented in sexual health research, we too often hear that there’s “not enough data” or there’s “not a big enough sample size.” This time, we have the data and the sample size is more than enough.
