Vital Statistics - The Gay Men's Sex Survey

From Sigma Research


Since its first occurrence in 1993, the Gay Men’s Sex Survey has been a collaborative venture. Listed below are all the collaborators that have ever been involved. Where an agency name occurs it denotes they have suggested questions for the survey, worked with us at Pride events (1993-2002), and / or distributed the booklet version to service users (1999-2008). Where a web link is also included that agency has recruited to the survey via their website (2001-2008).

This list will always be a work in progress and corrections are welcome. Where we are certain an agency has ceased to exist, or has merged into another this has been noted. Where a website is known to have closed down it has been deleted. Where we have managed to keep up with NHS name changes these have been updated.

Some collaborators have worked with us every year since the survey went national in 1997 and have recruited thousands of men during that time. Others have had less stamina or success. All are listed here once and thanked again. It really wouldn’t be possible without you.
