This website is for guys into guys (G2G) — gay, bisexual, queer, questioning, two-spirit, gender queer, gender non-binary, trans, and other guys, who are sexually and/or romantically interested in other guys. It’s a place for G2G to learn and get curious about the mental health issues affecting them and their communities and to help them locate mental health services in Ontario.
This website was created by a team of researchers who advocate for LGBTQ2+ mental health.
So, why good head? Though mental health can be a serious topic, we believe that we can reduce some of the stigma surrounding mental health by being intentionally playful. Hopefully this will lead to more self-awareness and dialogue in our communities. We want to show that mental health can be an approachable topic that deserves to be discussed.
Nonetheless, many of the topics we cover — suicide, substance use, HIV, discrimination — can be hard to discuss. They affect people in very real ways that we want to acknowledge and respect.

We gathered information from multiple research studies for this site. But a lot of the information laid out here comes from the Engage study. Engage is a large on-going research study examining the health of G2G living in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montréal. Engage includes surveys, in-person interviews, and monitoring for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
