public vs. private displays of affection study

Our newest study is on public vs. private displays of affection. When you’re out with your partner, do you hold hands? Does your partner want to hold hands, but you don’t? What kinds of affection do you share with your partner when you are at home? Does your partner crave more affection than you, are you evenly matched, or do you want more affection than they seem to? These are just some of the questions we are seeking to answer and we would love to have you participate in the study! If you’d like to participate in the study, click the link below. All participants will be entered into our monthly prize draw to win $50 each month.

memories of coming out study

Have you ever come out to a parent as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Two Spirit or Asexual? Have any of YOUR children ever come out to YOU as LGBTQ2s+? If so, this study is for you. We are seeking parents and adult children to participate in a study on the memories of the coming out process. While many past studies have examined the experience of coming out, no study to date has examined how we remember the coming out experience. All participants will be entered into monthly prize draws to win $100. If you successfully invite a parent or child to also participate in the study, then you'll both be entered to win $500! 


Insider vs. outsider views of romantic relationships study

Whether you yourself are in a relationship or whether you know someone who is, you may be eligible to participate in our Insider-Outsider Study of Romantic Relationships. In this study, we are seeking to better understand how individuals within a relationship and outside of a relationship make assessments of that relationship. Furthermore, we want to know more about how we communicate our opinions about each other’s relationships. The study involves completing an online survey about your relationship or someone else’s relationship. You’ll also have the option of inviting a friend or family member to also participate in the study with you. All participants will be entered to win monthly prize draws of $50 and a grand prize draw for $500.
