The University of Memphis’ GLBT Research Team is conducting a GLBT-affirmative study on Same-Sex Parenting, and we are hoping you will be interested in helping us recruit participants.
The purpose of this study is to learn about the experiences of GLBT parents in relationship to legal parenting rights. We believe this research is important in advocating for parents to be fully recognized in their family role and to not be discriminated against in family concerns.
Participants must be 18 years or older, currently be in a relationship with the same-sex partner with whom they have planned and created a family, and have at least one child under the age of 18 living in their home. The study should take approximately 20 minutes to complete online and meets human subjects approval by our university Institutional Review Board (E10-43).
If you wish to see our past work, please read about our research on the effects of anti-GLBT amendments on GLBT individuals and their families, which is available on the American Psychological Association’s website at http://www.apa.org/releases/glbt-stress-1108.html.
An overview of our research areas can be found on our school webpage at http://www.memphis.edu/cepr/glbt-research.htm.
Thank you for your consideration in supporting our advocacy for same-sex parents and their families.
