Black Research Group
The Black Research Group is a Black- and queer-led committee centering around the lived
experiences, community, and research expertise of Black queer community members and
researchers. Their research is guided by a theoretical framework including anti-oppression/anti-
racism, intersectionality, minority stress, trauma-informed practices, and strengths-based
approaches. Their research working with Black queer people living in Ontario aims to address
important gaps in academic and community knowledge about Black queer people in Ontario.
The goal is to promote a greater understanding of the sexual health needs, facilitators to positive
mental health, and best practices to increase engagement with sexual and mental health services
for the Black queer community in Ontario.
