Relationships and Stressors

Hello,

I was wondering if you could help me out with a project I am doing. I am collecting data for a study about lesbian, gay, and bisexual romantic relationships. We need volunteers to take a survey about their current or past relationship in order to answer crucial questions that have been so far ignored in the academic literature. We invite you to spread the word to anyone that would be interested in taking a short survey.

This survey is specifically for lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals and will ask some personal questions (to be clear, we are including trans* participants, but we are focusing on sexual orientation, not gender identity). Since participants are going to complete the questionnaire online, their responses will be completely anonymous, therefore we will never ask for their name or any information that could identify them.

If you would like to spread the word about this short survey please send out this link: https://survey.ccsu.edu/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=lgbromrel. Thank you for your time and if agree to spread the word, thank you so much for your help! With your help we can add to the much needed literature on LGB individuals.

This study has been approved by the Human Studies Counsel, Institutional Review Board at Central Connecticut State University. The IRB code for this study is: HSC #F14029

Please let me know if you have any questions about the survey.

Cultural Competency and Healthcare Disparities in LGBTQ community

Research is showing overall comfort with disclosure of sexual orientation, lifestyle choices, along with lack of cultural competency and correct questioning of risk factors has led to healthcare disparities in LGBTQ community. Please take the time to complete a quick 3-5 minute survey evaluating your experience with healthcare and ideas for improvement. This is greatly appreciated and will hopefully result in great changes in our healthcare interactions.

The Effect of Discrimination and Stress on Sexual and Behavioral Health on Sexual Minority Servicemembers

The goal of this study is to conduct exploratory research on the sexual and behavioral health of sexual minority service members. Specifically, the study looks at how discrimination and stress may influence sexual and behavioral outcomes. Preliminary data collection has shown that sexual minority servicemen who reported sexual psychological distress engaged in more drug use and increased risky sexual activity than both sexual minority servicemen and straight servicemen who have not reported experiencing discrimination or psychological distress.

LGBQ Workplace Microaggressions

We are researchers from Towson University and the University of San Francisco conducting research on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Queer (LGBQ) workplace microaggressions. Workplace microaggressions are a subtle form of prejudice that occur on a daily basis that can serve to invalidate experience on the basis of an employee’s sexual orientation. If you choose to participate in this research, you will be asked to complete a brief online survey, which should take approximately 15-20 minutes. During the survey, you will be asked to think about your interpersonal experiences and provide examples of microaggressions that occur in your current workplace.

To participate in this research you must be 18 years of age, identify as LGBQ, and be currently working.

Sexuality and Identity

This study is exploring identification vs. desires/actions. It mostly focuses on binaries and the bisexuality.
