Focus Group/Study Opportunity – Are you a man who self-identifies as gay, aged 50 years or older?

Project Title: The Meaning and Impact of Community: Older Gay Men’s Perspectives, and Implications for Well-Being

Are you a man who self-identifies as gay, aged 50 years or older?

Do you currently live on Vancouver Island/Gulf Islands, or Vancouver/Lower Mainland?

If so, we would be grateful for your participation in a research study

The purpose of this study is to deepen understandings of how older, self-identifying gay men conceptualize community along with supportive factors and barriers to community engagement through focus groups (in-person or virtual via Zoom). We will be sharing the findings from this study at a community forum where all participants are welcome to share their perspectives and bring community members together.  Ultimately, findings will inform resource development to support community mobilization for older, gay men.

This study has been approved by the UVic and UBC provincial harmonized approval number H23-0390.
