Participate in a study on LBQ2 experiences with gynecological cancers
Researchers across the country are working together on Cancer’s Margins and the Choreography of Knowledge: Toward a Queer Biopolitics and the Mobilization of Public Health Knowledge, a study on the experiences of LBQ2 (lesbian, bisexual, queer, and two-spirited) women and trans people in relation to breast or gynecological cancer.
“Ours is the first Canadian study to address the culturally-specific knowledge transfer requirements of LGBT2Q people who have been diagnosed with breast or gynecologic cancer,” said Kirk Furlotte, one of the researchers (and two-time Shaver!).
The team is looking for more participants to interview, so please feel free to get involved!
