How many gay and bisexual men live in Vancouver? (BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS)
How many gay and bisexual men do you think there are in Metro Vancouver?
Think of a number. I’ll wait.
Ashleigh Rich, a PhD student and researcher at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, studies populations who are at risk for HIV. She wanted to cast a broad net and identify as many men who have sex with men as possible. Gay and bi men account for more than half of all new HIV infections in Canada, and nearly a quarter of gay and bi men in Vancouver are living with HIV.
