You are invited to participate in a study examining the roles family religiosity, acculturation, gender,navigation of identities, mental distress and acceptance plays in the lives of LGBT Latino individuals. The purpose of this research study is to determine the role of family religiosity, acculturation, gender effects, navigation of identities, acceptance and mental distress that may have occurred due to these aspects in the lives of LGBT self-identified Latino individuals. Data will be collected via semi-structured phone interviews, consisting of 11 questions exploring the influence of these factors. 

The study takes 30-40 minutes and involves filling out a short survey online then having a phone interview about LGBT Latinos. Participants must be 18 and older.
