The Investigaytors program is a participatory, community-based, capacity-strengthening intervention for Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual+ (2SLGBTQQIA+) folks who are interested in health and community research.
The Investigaytors program returns in 2022 and is now recruiting participants.
If you've ever wanted to learn research skills and discover how research can help change the world for 2SLGBTQQIA+ folks and their health, this program is for you. Participants learn valuable skills and develop research literacy over several sessions:
Community-based research and the history of 2SLGBTQQIA+ health research
Context of community health for 2SLGBTQQIA+
Developing a research question
Presentation of research findings
Meeting the key players
Ultimately, the goal of Investigaytors is to understand the usefulness of research in addressing health inequities and knowledge gaps. This program also supports relationship building and engages folks in developing research potential.
Investigaytors is being offered as part of a joint initiative between Community-Based Research Centre (CBRC.net/investigaytors) and The Village Lab at the University of Manitoba (https://www.villagelab.ca/).
