Over 8,000 participants completed the 2014/15 iteration of the Sex Now survey (SN15), making it the largest survey of sexual minority men in Canada. The theme explored for SN15 was Gay Generations: Life Course and Gay Men’s Health, which provided an unprecedented opportunity to learn more from Canadian men about life course influences on health and prevention, and generational differences in men’s health behaviours and outcomes.

Given substantial knowledge gaps surrounding the life course of sexual minority men and related health outcomes, these findings will be relevant for those interested in learning more about important generational differences (and similarities), and how we can best serve sexual minority men of all ages.

Dr. Nathan Lachowsky is an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Health and Social Policy at the University of Victoria. He has conducted HIV and sexual health research across Canada and New Zealand with gay, bi and queer cis and trans men who have sex using interdisciplinary and community-based approaches. He completed a PhD in epidemiology from the University of Guelph, and Postdoctoral Fellowship with the British Columbia Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS working on the Momentum Health Study. Nathan has recently joined the CBRC Research team in planning the 2018 Sex Now Survey.

Jeff Morgan is an MA candidate at Simon Fraser University, and current “Investigaytors” coordinator with the CBRC. Jeff has broad research interests in health services, public health, and global health systems. His current Masters research focuses on the movement of patients and practitioners across international borders to access health services.

Logan Lorenz is a volunteer peer researcher with the Community-Based Research Centre for Gay Men’s Health. This commitment has included analyzing data from the Sex Now survey as it applies to the migration of gay men in Canada. He has presented his findings at local community events, including the Summit and is working towards publishing his findings. Shortly after moving to Vancouver in November 2014, Logan began volunteering in several of Vancouver's gay men's health organizations, including a regular volunteer commitment in delivering front-line support to gay and bi men who may be involved in sex work.
