Researchers at La Trobe University and Macquarie University (in collaboration with the Australian GBLTQI+ Multicultural Council, and the Brave Network) are seeking volunteer research participants to be involved in a study about the experiences the LGBTQA+ Australians have with religion, including participation in organized religion, personal relationships with spirituality and faith, and engaging with faith-based organisations (such as religious schools). We are interested in understanding which LGBTQA+ Australians have had experiences with religion, the nature of these experiences, and the impact that these experiences have had on the remaining aspects of their lives.
You May Qualify if You
You qualify to participate if you are at least 18, identify as belonging to the LGBTQA+ (or as being either a sexual minority or gender diverse), and live in Australia.
