About RHO and LGBT2SQ research
As part of our mandate to improve LGBT2SQ health outcomes in Ontario, Rainbow Health Ontario (RHO) acts as a catalyst for LGBT2SQ health research through partnerships, knowledge translation, advisory committee participation, and by fostering research networks.
We also host a contact database of researchers working in LGBT2SQ health, and list open LGBT2SQ health research on this website.
RHO’s work on research advisory committees
RHO is currently sitting on advisory committees for the TransFormed Project and the Due Justice for All project. We are also on the advisory committee for the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO)’s development of guidelines for working with LGBTQ populations.
The TransFormed Project
The goal of the TransFormed Project is to identify and respond to the needs of Two-Spirit, non-binary, trans, gender non-conforming and gender questioning people who live in or access services in the GTA intended to promote healthy relationships and prevent partner violence. The TransFormed team anticipates that active recruitment of online and written survey participants will take place from mid-August to mid-October 2018. For more information or to request a recruitment flyer, please contact Ilene Hyman (Researcher) or Tatiana Ferguson (Coordinator).
Due Justice for all
The Due Justice for All project is led by WomenatthecentrE, the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF) and METRAC Action on Violence. As described on METRAC’s website, “Due Justice for All is a collaborative project that is taking an evidence-based approach to understanding survivors’ experiences, current scholarship, and international models of responding to sexual violence.” Read more about Due Justice for All.
