My name is Michael (he/him), and I am a graduate student at the University of Maryland, College Park and a member of the LGBTQ+ community. I am recruiting LGBQ+ people (lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, and other minority sexual identities) for a study on well-being and LGBTQ+ community experiences.
If you participate in this two-part study (two surveys approximately two months apart), your responses will contribute to knowledge about this area of research. You will also be paid $9 in Amazon gift cards for fully and carefully completing both surveys ($3 for the first and $6 for the second), and be entered to win one of three $20 Amazon gift cards.
You can help this effort by taking the first survey sometime in the next week, which will take approximately 20-30 minutes, and letting other people know about the survey. To participate in this study, you must identify as LGBQ+ and be 18+ years of age.
To determine eligibility, please click the following link to take the eligibility survey (or "cut and paste” the link into your preferred Internet browser): https://umdsurvey.umd.edu/jfe/form/SV_d9VZXtxRyY3T28m (password: mentalhealth).

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.

Participants will be randomly assigned to complete the Parents Support Program or to wait for one month to complete the program. The Parent Support Program is an online program with 3 modules that include videos, educational materials, and writing activities designed to support parents of trans youth. All participants will be asked to complete a series of questionnaires prior to completing the program, and at one and two months after starting the program. Each survey is anticipated to take 10 -15 minutes to complete.

SCHOOL CLIMATE SURVEY We understand that across the U.S., school has looked very different this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, the 2021 National School Climate Survey is open to all LGBTQ+ students, regardless of whether they attended school virtually, in person, or a blend of both. This year’s survey also includes questions about students’ experiences at home, and challenges related to the pandemic and online learning.
We are in the process of contacting organizations that may be able to help GLSEN spread the word about the online survey. I am contacting you to ask if your organization would be able to post an announcement about the 2021 National School Climate Survey on its listservs, website, and/or through its social networks.
We also know that the pandemic has affected many local LGBTQ+ youth-serving organizations. You might only be connecting with youth virtually, so we would be happy to send you announcements and messages for the survey in both English and Spanish, that could include images, sample tweets, language for emails and website posting, etc. But if you have events for youth coming up in person or if your organization is regularly hosting youth in person, we would be happy to send you stickers and postcards to distribute. Please let us know if you would like us to mail you these kinds of materials!
We would love your help with this important outreach effort. To get involved, or more information about the survey, please feel free to contact our Summer Research Fellow, Jacquelyn Chin at email@example.com.
