Seeking Participants: LGBTQ2S Aging and Care Research



Hello! Thank you for sharing my information on this forum. I am conducting research as part of my PhD program at the University of Toronto, and seeking older LGBTQ2S community members to participate in voluntary, confidential interviews. Further information is below!


The purpose of this research is to learn more about LGBTQ2S people’s experiences of aging and care in Toronto. What are the conditions that shape how people experience aging and care?

    Hello everyone! The Rekai Centres Long Term Care Homes has embarked on an inclusivity journey, and as such is considering the possible creation of a dedicated 25 bed unit for the LGBTQ2SI+ Community. They are in the research phase of this project and are conducting a survey to collect input that will inform and guide their next steps. Please take 5 minutes to complete this survey! It is an exciting opportunity to help set the standard for LGBTQ2SI+ spaces and services in healthcare, which is especially relevant as the population is seeing an increase in aging. Every voice matters! Thank you!
