While COVID-19 continues to impact the lives of everyone in Canada and around the world, we know that the pandemic has created unique pressures on the health and well-being of gay, bi, queer and trans men, and Two-Spirit and non-binary people (GBT2Q). Even before COVID-19, our communities have faced significant mental, social, and sexual health challenges, which have been negatively impacted by physical distancing and the pandemic’s disruption to the health services we rely on such as, testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. 

In order to better understand how the pandemic has affected GBT2Q people across Canada, the Community-Based Research Centre, in partnership with the Ontario HIV Treatment Network, is launching a national special COVID-19 edition of their Sex Now survey. They need your help and hope you can spare some time to fill out the survey and share your thoughts.
