Aboriginal, Two-Spirit and LGBTQ Migration, Mobility, and Health Research Project

Aboriginal, Two-Spirit and LGBTQ Migration, Mobility, and Health Research Project

This qualitative, community-based research project explored the trajectories of migration of Aboriginal people who identify as Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and/or queer (LGBTQ) and the impact of mobility on health and wellness. Our focus on migration included movement from First Nation reserve communities to urban centres or rural communities (and back and forth) as well as staying or moving within one place.

This research project had the following objectives:
– to explore the migration paths and experiences of Aboriginal Two-Spirit and LGBTQ
peoples, their experiences of health/wellness in that context, and their interactions with
health and social services (including mainstream, Aboriginal and LGBTQ services).
– to generate new knowledge that may lead to future research that will be of direct benefit to LGBTQ and Aboriginal communities, Aboriginal service providers and health/social service agencies.
