The Together Study


The Together Study is funded by the National Institutes of Health. This study is the culmination of years of studies that have focused on gay male couples and their health, particularly in regards to HIV. We are housed in the Center for Research and Education on Gender and Sexuality (CREGS) at San Francisco State University.

Participation in the study lasts over 9 months. First, we meet with you and your partner to get you started and provide testing. Then, you take part in the two-day couples workshop. Afterwards, we’ll have follow-up appointments with you at 3, 6, and 9 months to see how the workshop worked for you. Total participation lasts about 12 hours over 9 months.

If you are eligible and participate through the whole study, you and your partner will both earn $250 each. You receive about $50 per appointment.

The Together Study is approved under the San Francisco State University Institutional Review Board, IRB #H16-12b.
