Call for Research Participants

Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Person’s Attitudes and Experiences Survey

Dear Participant:

We are a sexual minority research team from the University of Tennessee conducting an empirical study examining the attitudes and experiences of lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) persons. This online survey will ask questions about attitudes and experiences you may have had as a sexual minority person, how you deal with life’s challenges, psychological well-being, and demographics. We sincerely invite you to participate in this survey to help us learn more about LGB persons in our communities!

To be eligible for this study, you must be at least 18 years old, experience some degree of same-sex attraction, and currently reside in the United States. The survey is confidential, and takes about 25-35 minutes to complete. As an incentive to participate, all participants will be given the chance to enter a raffle awarding $20 Starbucks gift cards to five randomly selected persons. If you want to be entered into the raffle without participating in the study, send an email to dszymans@utk.edu requesting to do so. For those interested in participating in this study, click on the following hypertext link (or cut and paste it into your browser):

Please feel free to forward this e-mail announcement to eligible friends/colleagues and other lesbian/gay/bisexual-related listservs. Thanks in advance for your help with this project!

Sincerely,

Dawn and Renee
