We know that Two Spirit, Gay, Bisexual, and Queer (2SGBQ+) men, including cis, trans, and other gender diverse folks have unique needs and experiences when it comes to their health. We also know that the community does not always have the spaces and places to connect with each other to build knowledge and skills.
Centre for Sexuality is excited to be developing new programming for 2SGBQ+ guys to address some of these needs and create opportunities for connection and learning in Calgary and area. We will be launching this programming in 2023 – stay tuned to this page and our social media for further details!
Join the Community Advisory Board!
To help guide the Centre for Sexuality’s work in this area, we are seeking members of the 2SGBQ+ community to join a Community Advisory Board (CAB) composed of 12 members of the 2SGBQ+ community, representing a diversity of backgrounds, experiences and identities. This will include two Co-Chair positions and 10 Members at Large.
What Will the CAB Do?
CAB members will regularly provide insight into the needs of 2SGBQ+ guys in the community, review proposed activities, and lead the development of initiatives. The CAB will meet four times per year at the Centre for Sexuality and/or on Zoom to accommodate all participants.
The CAB will work with Centre’s Gay Men’s Health Specialist, who will serve as a member of the CAB and provide strategic direction alongside the two Co-Chairs. The Gay Men’s Health Specialist is the staff lead on this project and will be responsible for putting input and insight from the CAB into action.
For more information about what’s involved, view the position descriptions below:
We want to consult the 2SGBQ+ community to develop programming that is effective and helpful. Joining the CAB is a great way to make your voice heard and create new opportunities for health, wellness, and social connection.
While these are volunteer positions, CAB members will receive an honorarium per meeting attended, totaling $400 per year for Members at Large and $500 per year for each Co-Chair.
If you’re interested, please fill out an online application. Applications close on Friday, February 10.
If you have any questions about the CAB or the application process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
