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!


Participants are interviewed for 60-90 minutes about their experiences. All interviews are audio recorded, with the option of video recording as well.
