Hello! We are researchers from Washington State University Psychology Department. We are conducting psychology research projects on sex education experiences and (1) attitudes that heterosexual students have toward LGBTQ+ individuals, (2) attitudes that LGBTQ+ students have about themselves, and (3) the well-being of transgender, gender non-binary, and gender non-conforming students. This research has been certified exempt for review by the WSU Institutional Review Board.
For these studies, we are seeking participants who are 18-26, speak fluent English, and have experienced sex education. For the transgender and gender non-conforming study, individuals must also identify as a gender minority (not cisgender). We are working with organizations and academic institutions throughout the country to help us recruit participants, and you may be receiving this information from an organization or academic institution you are a member of or affiliated with.
Each survey will take about 15-20 minutes on a voluntary basis. Upon successful completion of the online survey, participants will have the opportunity to enter a raffle draw for one of five $50 Amazon gift cards.
All responses to the surveys will be completely anonymous. The surveys include some sensitive questions regarding mental and sexual health, sexuality, gender identity, and other personal information.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding either study, please feel free to contact the researchers below.Read more
LGBTQ+ Medical Billing Focus Group
Calling all LGBTQ+ people of New York State! Have you ever received a bill from a hospital or a doctor that was impossible to understand? Do you feel like hospitals need to be more transparent about how they charge patients?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we want to hear from YOU! Raising Women’s Voices- NY is a nonprofit organizing working to make sure that the voices of women and LGBTQ+ people are represented in the health care policies that affect their lives.
We will be hosting a focus group to learn about some of the unfair medical billing practices that often cause New Yorkers to go into medical debt. The focus group will be on January 27 from 7:30-9:00 pm. We will provide $50 compensation for your active participation. Because of COVID-19, we will be hosting this focus group online. Please note that we are looking for participants who have private insurance or no insurance, but not Medicaid.
