Sex Now 2024: Coming to You!

Sex Now 2024: Coming to You!

This summer, CBRC’s Sex Now survey will be hitting the road to collect data at Pride events across the country. In some cities, we’ll also be visiting other queer spaces, including bars and bathhouses. Sex Now is Canada’s largest and longest running health survey of Two-Spirit, gay, bisexual, queer, and trans men and non-binary (2S/GBTQ) people and will be back in-person for the first time since 2022.

How does participating in Sex Now help?

We use Sex Now data to advocate for policy changes that makes things better for our communities, so the answers you provide go a long way in improving the health and wellness of our communities. For example, past data has been used to advocate for a ban on conversion therapy practices and changes to blood donation policy to no longer bar all men who have had sex with men from donating in Canada.

We still have much more work to do! By taking part in Sex Now 2024: Coming to You, you too will be adding your voice to the thousands of others who are also advocating for the health and wellbeing of our communities. The answers you provide will be widely used by community, public health, research, and policy stakeholders to make change. In addition to questions about sex, we want to know about your experiences with mental health, substance use, and community connection. All participants will receive $10 cash for completing the survey.

In addition to the survey, participants will also be able to provide a small blood sample by finger prick to get screened for HIV, hepatitis C, syphilis, and hepatitis B. If you would like, our study team will be able to provide you with your results.

So, come and see us on the road. Our tour schedule is below. Please note that Pride dates are subject to change, so be sure to check the Pride organization’s event pages directly to confirm dates.
