Investigaytors is a community health leadership program that equips young queer, trans, and Two Spirit people with the social connections, health knowledge, and community-based research skills they need to become health leaders in their communities.

In Halifax, CBRC has partnered with Dr. Matt Numer's Sexual Health and Gender Lab at Dalhousie University to offer Investigaytors. Investigaytors will use data from the Sex Now Survey which focuses on gay, bi, queer and trans men, and Two-Spirit and non-binary people (GBT2Q) health. Participants don't have to conduct their own surveys or interviews, but instead will use existing data.

The next cohort of the program runs from September 2021 to March 2022.

Participants will meet every Wednesday at 6 p.m. for two hours at the Halifax Sexual Health Centre (7071 Bayers Road, Starlite Gallery unit 302) - with some sessions online if public health or weather requires.

The program is broken down into five modules:

  1. Introduction to Research
  2. Survey Methods and Background
  3. Quantitative Analyses
  4. Conducting Analyses
  5. Knowledge Translation
