Webinar: Queering Healthcare Access and Accessibility: CBRC Summit Round-Up

This webinar was recorded on Wednesday January 22, 2020, on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish people, which includes Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam First Nations.


This webinar recapped some of the highlights of last year’s Summit, a conference for Queer Men’s health hosted by Darren Ho and and Jose Patiño-Gomez of Community Based Research Centre. In its 15th iteration in 2019, the theme was ‘Queering Healthcare Access and Accessibility’ which meant that the Summit was dedicated to talking about what is and isn’t working for Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Two Spirit, and Queer men to access everything needed to live happy, healthy, and supported lives. This webinar will feature some key points as discussed by keynote speakers Andrew Gurza, Disability Awareness consultant, James Makokis, Two Spirit physician with a trans health focused practice, as well as others. We’ll also summarize some of discussion points from the Summit’s keynote panel on ending conversion therapy, or SOGICE (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Change Efforts.)


Interview ends at 35:50, followed by Q/A period.
