Sex Now Survey
Since March, the CBRC team, in collaboration with the Investigaytors and our community partners, has been working on the development of Sex Now 2014. The survey will continue our exploration of gay men’s health, this time with a life-course lens by looking at differences across generations.
On a cloudy Vancouver morning, Olivier and I boarded a plane headed for bright and beautiful Kelowna. Our mission was to present findings from Sex Now 2011 and gain some insight on how to better promote Sex Now 2014 in the region. We also wanted to get some feedback on the kinds of questions that should be on the next survey. Our discussion with community members was held in a quaint coffee shop in Downtown Kelowna and was hosted with the help of Jazzy, the new Men’s Health Project Coordinator at Living Positive Resource Centre.
