Research Assistant at #GotBlood2Give
#GotBlood2Give is a study taking place in Halifax, Montréal, Ottawa and Toronto. The goal of this research study is to examine the barriers to participation in blood donation among African, Caribbean and Black men (males) over the age of 17 (18 in Montréal) who have sex with men (males). We hope to change and update the current Canadian Blood Services blood donor questionnaire by removing discriminatory barriers. This will facilitate greater participation by African, Caribbean and Black men who have sex with men.
Managing Editor at Art/iculation
Art/iculation is an annual, bilingual student publication based in Montreal. The magazine takes its name from “The theory and method of articulation in cultural studies” by Jennifer Daryl Slack, who argues “articulation can be understood as a way of characterizing a social formation without falling into the twin traps of reductionism and essentialism”. This captures the spirit of Art/iculation, which aims to make space for nuanced works from a variety of perspectives.

RÉZO is a community-based organization for gay and bisexual men in Montreal whose focus is overall health promotion as well as the prevention of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Organizing Committee Member at Pervers/Cité

Since 2007, Pervers/Cité has been organizing a blend of hot dance parties, critical political interventions and alternative art practices to build links across social justice movements and queer communities. In a climate of corporate gay agendas and whitewashed homogeneity, Pervers/Cité strives to provide a schedule of activities to reanimate the radical underpinnings to the pride movement.
