For An Inclusive Health System

Gay, bisexual, queer and Two-Spirit (GBQ2S) men continue to face significant challenges accessing health care services, particularly when it comes to mental health care. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is an additional challenge that has highlighted several flaws in the Quebec health system and is exacerbating difficulties in health care access for many. 

It is in this context that we launched the study: For a more inclusive health system for gay, bisexual, queer and Two-Spirit men (GBQ2S) in Montreal est lancée. The goal of this study is to describe the experience of GBQ2S men with health services and to reimagine health care services to make them more inclusive and equitable for GBQ2S. 

For this study, we are inviting GBQ2S men living on the island of Montreal to share their experiences with health services and their suggestions for improvement in Zoom discussion groups. Specific groups for racialized GBQ2S men and trans GBQ2S men are planned.

A compensation of $75 is offered to participants.
