NEW STUDY: Requesting Participation in a Research Study about LGBTQ Experiences 

Requesting Participation in a Research Study about LGBTQ Experiences  

We are conducting an online research study to understand experiences of hypervigilance in the lives of LGBTQ people. By “hypervigilance” we mean the experience of paying extra close attention to your surroundings. If you are at least 18 years old and identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or Queer (LGBTQ), please share your feelings and thoughts with us by participating in a survey. It should take about 15 minutes to complete and we do not ask for information that would identify you.

Here is the link to the survey:

If you are not eligible for this study but know someone who is, please help us by passing this information along!
