Net Gay-Bi-Trans Baromètre

Survey on online dating habits, lifestyles, sexuality, prevention / HIV and health of MSM and TRANS people.

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2018-19 edition of the Net Gay-Bi-Trans Baromètre, a study conducted every 3 years among Men who have Sex with Men (MSM, cis and trans), and trans people (women and men) residing in France or in Canada.

The following study question's numerous subjects, such as: the use of social networks, sexual diversity, sexual orientation, coming-out, online dating, couple relationships, sexual relations with masculine or feminine casual partners, as well as the way sexual risk is managed. It also question's participants’ lifestyles such as, for example, the level of involvement and proximity to the LGBTQI+ community. In addition, it studies subjects that can be considered taboo, such as barebacking, drug and alcohol consumption, sex work and how it impacts relationships, sexual risk-taking reduction and knowledge, interest and/or adoption of HIV prevention strategies, etc.
Health is at the heart of this study, and it is now more exhaustively approached through exploring sexual, psychological and relational health. This study also focuses on discrimination, including questions on the multiple ways in which, one can feel discriminated against depending on their life course, ethnic background and gender (with a specific interest in trans people whose transition processes are challenged).

You should therefore, hopefully, feel passionate about this survey and consider it as a real experience of introspection. In 2019, it is now impossible to address gay, bisexual, queer men and trans people’s sexuality only through the lens of HIV matters. Contemporary issues have now evolved, particularly when it comes to relationships with others and the shared spaces where we form these relationships, in the face of ever more oppressive norms.
