Surveys & Studies
The following are surveys and studiess that we share as a community service. If you have a survey or study that you are seeking participants for please email email@example.com
Are you now, or have you previously been, in a romantic partnership with someone from another country?
My name is Laurie Sylla and I am a freelance researcher/writer working on a book and am surveying people about their trans-national relationships. I am looking for assistance reaching people who are now, or who have previously been, in a romantic partnership with someone from another country. My goal is help these couples increase their likelihood of long-term relationship success. I am committed to having gay and lesbian couples represented in this book, especially given the additional legal and immigration hurdles g/l couples frequently need to go through.

Understanding factors involved in self-injury among LGBTQ individuals
Interested in helping with some important research?
We are looking for LGBTQ individuals between 18 and 25 years of age to participate in a research project looking at self-injury. You do not need to have a history of self-injury to participate. The study will take approximately one hour to complete and can be done ONLINE, from your own computer, on your own time.
Participants will be eligible to win one of two $100 gift cards forAmazon.com. The draw will occur in Spring, 2013. Chances of winning will depend on the number of those who participate.
If interested please go to http://www.westresearch.ca/lgbtqstudy/ or email the graduate coordinator of this project, Jill St. Denis email@example.com.
This project has been reviewed and received clearance from the Research Ethics Board at the University of Guelph (REB#12FE001).
Are you lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) and a member of the American workforce?
The Movement Advancement Project (MAP), the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and the Center for American Progress (CAP) are co-authoring a policy report on LGBT Workers in the American Workforce, which is slated to launch in Spring of 2013. It will provide an overview of the American workforce and the LGBT workforce in America, and then look at how workplace challenges make it difficult for LGBT workers to provide for themselves and their families.
We want to hear it all - the good, the bad and the ugly. Adding your voice to this project will help advance policies to make workplaces more inclusive, and help raise the profile of LGBT workplace issues in the media and across the nation. With your permission, one use for your stories may be in our upcoming report about LGBT Workers in the American Workforce. Or, if you are willing, we might ask you to speak with the media (and we would provide training to help you do so effectively). But, even if you wish to remain anonymous, we still want to hear from you. Learn more here.
Does LGBT(Q) Equality Matter to You? If So, Please Take This Brief Survey
Throughout the U.S., the hard-earned rights of LGBT(Q) individuals are being discussed in politics, in media and, very possibly, in your own community. Would you know where to turn if you needed assistance with any of the following LGBT(Q) or HIV-related legal issues?
• Marriage equality
• Hate crimes/violence
• Youth and schools
We ask that you take this brief online survey to help us learn more about which LGBT(Q)/HIV legal issues are most important to you. In addition, we hope to learn where you might seek assistance if you feel that your rights — or the rights of someone you care about — have been violated.
Please know that your valuable feedback is completely confidential. We appreciate your time and consideration — thank you!
SPANISH STUDY RE: THE POSITIVE ASPECTS OF BEING LGB
This is to request participation and support for a doctoral research project from the Sexology Research Group at the University of Almería (Spain) in collaboration with the Spanish Society for Sexological Intervention.
Participation consists of filling out a 15 minute online survey. To support the study, please email, post, tweet, or Facebook the link, http://encuestas.ual.es:9080/limesurvey/index.php?sid=83789&lang=en, to anyone you think might be intersted.
What is this study about?
The title of this study is THE POSITIVE ASPECTS OF BEING GAY, LESBIAN or BISEXUAL. Every time another study publishes more data on “suicidal, young gay teens” or “the lesbian cochlea” they are simply perpetuating negative stereotypes. The study is using a positive psychology base. Our aim is to publish data on POSITIVE aspects about being non-heterosexual to more adequately represent GLB experiences. This study also looks at the negative aspects, but negative in terms of consequences of living in a heterosexist society.
What about privacy? Will participants be protected?
Absolutely, by using LimeSurvey’s application to collect data, no information about participants, other than what they answer in basic demographic information, like State of residence, can ever be revealed. There are no cookies, IP address tracking, names attached, nothing of the sort. A person’s right to privacy is essential and fully respected.
How does this fit with MEUSA’s mission?
The fight for equal rights is multi-front, academic research being one of them. Without the work of Evelyn Hooker, the DSM might still list homosexuality. Participating in studies is another way to work towards change.

SAGE Seeking Stories from Older LGBTIQ People
SAGE is an organization providing “Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Elders”. This item posted 2011-04-08.
As many of you know, last week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced several actions it will take to improve the health and well-being of LGBT people. For LGBT older adults, the most significant announcement was that HHS will instruct the States that they are empowered to treat same-sex partners the same as married heterosexual couples when it comes to protection from "spousal impoverishment" under Medicaid.
Until now, LGBT older couples have not been eligible for the exemptions that apply to married heterosexual couples, which are there to protect a healthy spouse from having to give up retirement savings and the family home in order to qualify a spouse for long-term care. States now have to ability to correct this inequity. However, the federal government is not forcing States to take corrective actions but instead telling States they have the legal power to do so.
SAGE has been talking to various policy thinkers and journalists, and in order to support our ongoing advocacy work around this issue, we are now seeking personal stories of LGBT older couples in which one person is in need of, or almost in need of, long term care, will need Medicaid coverage at some point, and they own a home or retirement savings that could be jeopardized without spousal impoverishment protection. Couples must be comfortable going public with their story, and willing to be potentially interviewed by reporters.
If you know of any LGBT older couples who fit this criteria, please contact me ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-741-2247. Thank you for your help!
