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 team recently moved to the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. Although we are located in Toronto our work examines the lives and experiences of LGBTQ people from across Ontario.

This is Our Community: Bisexual Ant-Stigma Videos

We're excited to share the This is Our Community: Bisexual Anti-stigma Videos with you! We created a series of videos that feature bisexual people with their friends, family and partners about how these loving and supportive relationships make a difference in their lives and help them navigate the challenges of being bisexual. Check them out.

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.
