The Engage Study

Engage is a voluntary sexual health research study with gay, bi, and queer men, including trans and 2-spirit men and other men who have sex with men, of all HIV statuses. The study is happening in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, with guys aged 16+. Engage is a cohort study, which means that several hundred guys are recruited into the study and then those same guys regularly participate in the study every 6 months for up to 4 years so that we can look at trends in behaviours and experiences overtime.

This website is for guys into guys (G2G) — gay, bisexual, queer, questioning, or men who have sex with men. It is a place for G2G to learn and build curiosity about the mental health issues affecting their communities and to help them locate mental health services in Ontario.
