The Researchers' Own Stories

Where do gay community-based researchers come from? What are their stories? The cover photo is no incidental nostalgic view; a footbridge over the Otonabee River was part of the youthful landscape of more than one contributor to this publication. The footbridge could be a metaphor for community-based research. Footbridges exist for the community; no powerboat or ferry provided—though if you’re lucky you might have a canoe. A footbridge allows for human contact: a place to gather stories; also perhaps detail how many walk over the bridge in a day—or linger on the bridge in the moonlight. Where a researcher can become an interpreter of community. Where old-world values that exclude gay men can be replaced by shared personal narratives; where we can create new positive values. To what extent are we shaped by our past experiences? What can we learn when we make ourselves the subject of study?
