GSSPI research will meaningfully involve global gay communities. Using participatory action approaches we will engage community stakeholders and collaboratively generate knowledge to empower gay men and uplift gay male sexuality. There will be a particular focus on diversity within gay male communities – men of color, migrant gay men and men outside of the U.S. and Western Europe. We will prioritize the intersecting experiences and struggles around body autonomy, racial, economic, and reproductive justice. GSSPI’s interdisciplinary research efforts will focus on coalition building with communities impacted by stigma, discrimination, homophobia, racism, and other forms of oppression both domestically and internationally.
