Invitation to participate in a research study on lesbian and gay families
Were you raised by lesbian or gay parents? Have you had at least one romantic relationship lasting more than one year? My name is Tom Roskos and I’m a graduate student in the Counseling Psychology program at the University of North Dakota. I am an advocate of individuals raised by lesbian and gay parents and I’m conducting a research project on the relationship experiences of adults raised as children by lesbian or gay parents. If you’re 21 or older and have at least one gay or lesbian parent, I’d like to interview you about your experiences. You will be compensated $30.00 for your time.
Thanks for your consideration!Volunteers needed for survey on Protective Factors for Sexual Minority IndividualsWith the permission of The University of Montana Institutional Review Board, I am conducting a study on protective factors for sexual minority individuals. Specifically, my project examines whether or not the way people explain negative events that happen to them protects them from developing depressive symptoms. I am specifically interested in understanding how this may happen amongst 18-22 year olds who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning. Additionally, it includes those who engage in sexual behaviors with, or have attractions to, members of the same sex.
The survey takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. As a token of my appreciation for your time, you will have the option of entering a drawing for one of four $25 iTunes gift cards at the completion of the study. I appreciate your time and effort dedicated to this research. You are under no pressure to participate and if you decide to do the survey, you may stop at any time. Your information will be handled anonymously and all responses will be analyzed without identifying data.
If you would like to speak with my advisor or myself about this study, please contact us at the information below. Please feel free to forward this e-mail announcement to eligible friends/student colleagues, or post the link on any social networking site you may use.
