Researchers seek LGBT parents for survey

A group of researchers from Lawrence University need LGBT parents to complete a survey for a study about LGBT parents, their partners and their children.

A group of researchers from Lawrence University are seeking LGBT parents to complete a survey for a study about LGBT parents, their partners and their children.

“We want to explore the unique set of challenges that families with LGBT parents may face as a result of social policies and attitudes, and how they may overcome or manage these challenges,” they say on their Web site.

The group — made up of experts, recent graduates and students studying gender studies and psychology — says they approach the subject as allies and hope to hear from a range of communities.

According to an update posted during the summer, 104 people from 24 states have participated in the study so far.

“There are very few studies that explore LGBT families nationally — that is, how LGBT families are doing in a variety of communities.  Therefore, we are continuing our work with the survey,” the Web site says.
