Trailblazers 2019: Community-Based Research Centre's Jody Jollimore champions queer male health

After he left rural Nova Scotia, it was Montreal’s gay village that Jody Jollimore credits with raising him with survival skills that are the reason he’s alive today. And because of that, he always wants to give back.

During his career, Jollimore, who has lived in Vancouver for more than a decade, has worked for the local Health Initiative for Men, and—due to a lifelong interest in politics—on public policies from sex-worker rights and student loans to same-sex marriage. Now the executive director of the Community-Based Research Centre (CBRC), a Vancouver organization that expanded nationally in 2018, he's helping, along with his colleagues, to champion advancements in Canadian queer male health.
