Dear Community Advocate, I wanted to be the first to share exciting news of the Aging with Pride: National Health, Aging, and Sexuality/Gender Study (NHAS)'s recent launch of a new survey. One goal of this launch is to reach a new generation of study participants, adults turning 52-58 this year, who were not eligible to participate when our study first began. It is our hope that by hearing this new generation voice their thoughts, we will further deepen our understanding of how various life experiences are related to changes in aging, health, and well-being over time. The survey can be accessed by clicking "check your eligibility" at the top of our study website.
Here are some easy ways you can help us with ongoing study outreach efforts:
Forward this email to your agency's social media team and spread the word in your community. Sharable graphics are available here on our website.
Mention the survey in your newsletter.
Following us on social media would give your agency the opportunity to be one of the first to learn about new information about health disparities among LGBTQ mid-life and older adults, new study participation opportunities, and the launch of any new future interventions. Thank you for your continued support of the Aging with Pride Study! As the current population continues to age with growing health disparities among LGBTQ+ midlife and older adults, our work remains vital.
Best regards, Karen Karen Fredriksen Goldsen, PhD Director, Goldsen Institute Principal Investigator, Aging with Pride: National Health, Aging, Gender/Sexuality Study (NHAS) Professor, University of Washington AgePride@uw.edu

Greetings, My name is Olivia Hucks and I am the community outreach coordinator for Project PASSION, which is a research project led by Dr. Dominic Parrott at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA. The project is funded by the National Institutes of Health. Given the aims of PFLAG Tacoma, I think you would be interested in learning about this project.
We know that when people have healthy intimate relationships, their overall mental and physical health is good as well. Our primary goal is to conduct research that gives back to the LGBTQ+ community. Indeed, we hope that this information can be used to develop culturally-sensitive recommendations and programs to promote healthy intimate relationships for LGBTQ+ people.
Thus, in our project, we want to learn more about what can lead to healthy, and unhealthy, intimate relationships for LGBTQ+ people. Our project focuses on factors that lead to negative health outcomes as well as factors that promote resilience. We are seeking participants for a study that is completed entirely online.
Who is a good fit for the study? The study may be a good fit someone if: ·They and their partner are both 21 years or older ·They identify as LGBTQ+ and are in a relationship ·They currently drink alcohol (i.e., they are not in recovery) ·People of all genders and sexual orientations are welcome What would happen if someone enrolls in the study?We invite all interested people to call or visit our webpage to learn more (see contact information below). Each partner will earn a minimum of $40 for completing questionnaires and meeting with our research staff a video call (2 hours). Each partner can also earn up to an additional $145 for completing all online surveys (Study 2). Our team is very excited about this project. We believe that it can provide much needed data that will ultimately help to promote healthier intimate relationships for LGBTQ+ people, which again is one of the most important predictors of a person’s general physical and mental health.
