Male Romantic Relationship Study

All adults (over age 18) who identify as male and have had at least one prior romantic relationship with another self-identified male are invited to participate. Many participants will identify as gay or bisexual, but participation is open to all men.

Social and Political Attitudes of LGBTQ Individuals

You are invited to participate in an academic study examining the social and political attitudes and behaviors of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals. As not much is known about the LGBTQ population in the United States, it is important to capture attitudes and behaviors in order to determine if there is indeed a distinctive culture that has the ability to wield social and political influence.
Unfortunately, past studies have been geared on the attitudes towards this group, and not actually of the LGBTQ population. Because there has been very little research done in this area, your participation is incredibly important.

After you have completed the survey, we strongly encourage you to forward this survey to your friends, family, and acquaintances that also identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer.

Sexuality Survey: For trans and non-trans individuals

Sexuality is an important part of many adults’ (and teens’) lives. Because trans people’s relationships with their bodies and, especially, the body parts many people associate with sexual activity, are often different from
non-trans people’s, sexuality for trans people and sexual partners can present new issues, challenges, and joys.

This survey was designed so that it can be answered by both trans and non-trans people, by individuals who are and aren't in a relationship, by people who are partnered with trans and non-trans partners, and by people
who have one or more partners. Ultimately, we need you to help us. Skip questions and/or add comments to your answers to make them fit your situation. Because some questions seem to presume you are part of a couple that has one trans and one non-trans partner, we particularly ask those in trans-trans relationships and/or polyamorous relationships to help us accurately reflect your experience by commenting on your answers.

Study on Coming Out and Individual Growth

This project focuses on lesbian women’s and gay men’s experiences of coming out as lesbian or gay to others (disclosing or otherwise sharing one’s LG identity) and the effect of this ongoing process of disclosure on their
lives. Specifically, the project will look at how the process of coming out to others may lead to important growth experiences in the lives of lesbians and gay men.

The website for the study can be accessed through this site:


Health Questionnaire for Sexual Minorities

Gay men and lesbian women are often the center of people’s discussions and sometimes the focus of heated debates. All of this attention may result in gay men and lesbian women experiencing prejudice (in the form of negative attitudes) and discrimination (in the form of negative or harmful behaviours). Although this may be the case, formal study of the experiences of gay men and lesbian women rarely takes place.

This study seeks to document some of the attitudes you feel others hold toward lesbian women and gay men, as well as some of the behaviors you may have experienced on account of your sexual orientation and/or gender identity. We would also like to ask you some questions regarding your health (e.g., Do you smoke cigarettes?) and your well-being (e.g., Do you feel anxious or calm?).

Identity construction among FtMs of color

This research project examines how FtMs (inclusive term to include all identities on the FtM spectrum) of Color perceive themselves, how other's perceive them and how this is affected by the social construction of gender.  I am particularly interested in how racial identity affects perception of self while and after transitioning (I recognize that transitioning is subjective and may not have an end for some).  Participation is completely voluntary and confidential.
