A National Study of Trans Men and Non-Binary People’s Sexual Health and Wellness

Sex Now is a community-based health survey for gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (GBMSM) in Canada. It is one of only a few studies of GBMSM to be inclusive of transgender men and non-binary people which presents a novel and exciting opportunity to understand these groups’ sexual health and wellness outcomes and needs in order to create public health interventions that are targeted and appropriate to them. Working with the Community-Based Research Centre, the intern will analyse data specific to these groups and determine ways in which the data can be shared with communities in meaningful ways. The intern will develop a public community report as well as an academic manuscript for peer-reviewed publication.
