Trussler, Terry. (2013). The Gradient: Pride, Prejudice and Determinants of Health—Hidden Social Structure in Health Survey Data. Presented at the Gay Men's Health Summit, Vancouver, Canada. Eco social theories of health—Social Determinants, Minority Stress, Syndemic Production, Intersectionality—all try to explain health outcomes as effects of social inequality. To investigate the role of inequity in gay men’s health and HIV, CBRC conducted two national surveys—each sampling more than 8,000 Canadian men—asking questions beyond behaviours to explore experience with prejudice, discrimination and social participation. The results revealed that critical social and health disparities exist between gay, bisexual and other MSM married to women. A consistent gradient appears across key measures of HIV epidemiology. Gay men commonly fared worst, female-partnered MSM best and bisexual men somewhere between. We will review the gradient as evidence for the health effects of social inequality and implications for the future of gay men’s health promotion.
