Researching for LGBTQ Health

Welcome to Re:searching for LGBTQ Health!

We are a team of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, Two-Spirit, and queer (LGBTQ) and ally researchers who focus on understanding how LGBTQ people experience physical and emotional (mental) health, and how they access health services.

Learn more about our research approach, goals and values.

Our office is in the Health Systems and Health Equity Research Group of the Centre for Addiction & Mental Health in Toronto, but our work examines LGBTQ lives and experiences all over the province.

Two-Spirited Podcasts

The Two Spirited Roundtable Project recorded podcasts with two-spirited people in Ontario about their lives, their work, and the teachings they carry. We believe that having access to supportive cultural teachings can keep two-spirited and LGBTQ Indigenous people healthy and happy. We hope these podcasts will spark conversations within our broader communities about our Indigenous sexual and gender identities, and what they mean to us.
