I recently received an email from someone who is working on a Master’s Degree, asking if I could publicise an online questionnaire which is here: https://keelepsych.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0976YtCkEBdMxyR
The questionnaire is part of a study that is “interested in what might encourage LGBTQIA people to help groups under the umbrella that they are not necessarily a part of.”
I spent a while completing the survey myself and included information on it in one of the regular emails that I send to people that come along to Surrey Swans. At the recent Surrey Swans meeting I also talked a bit about some of the questions that the process of completing the survey raised in my own mind and ways in which it made me think about how I see myself and how I see the LGBT “community”.
To take part in the survey a person needs to:
- Identify as a member of the LGBTQIA community (i.e. you are not heterosexual and/or your gender identity does not match the one you were assigned at birth)
- Live in any region of the UK or Cyprus
- Be at least 18 years old
If those bullet points apply to you and you have a bit of time to spare I recommend you give the questionnaire a go. It’s here.
