Test subjects needed to help fine-tune Bi Men's Health study

Passing along this message looking for non-monosexual men to help with this study.


Our research team is currently looking for volunteers, specifically self-identified men, to pilot test our online survey and leave us feedback. This study, named “Bisexual Identity: Implications for Mental and Sexual Health”, will attempt to better understand the unique experiences of men who are attracted to more than one sex and/or gender. This may include men who identify as bisexual, two-spirited, pansexual, fluid, queer, or who use other terms to describe their multi-gender attraction.

As some of you may know, this is an important topic considering there are almost no large studies exclusively about bisexual men. Participating in pilot testing involves completing a one-hour long online survey, either in English or in French. Responses obtained through pilot testing will not be used in the study; they will be used to help us improve the survey before its launch.

If interested, please contact the Project Coordinator through e-mail ( or phone call(514-398-4247). Pilot testing will run for two weeks only.

Thank you for your time!
