We have been requested to inform all of you of a research study. I’m just going to copy and paste the e-mail announcement below. For submitting you could win a free $100 Amazon gift card. Yay free things!
Hello. We are a research team conducting a study examining attitudes, feelings, and experiences of heterosexual biological siblings of lesbian or gay persons. We would appreciate it if you could forward our research announcement below to students, colleagues, and friends who may be interested in participating in this study. Thank you!
I am a researcher conducting a study examining attitudes, feelings, and experiences of heterosexual biological siblings of lesbian or gay (LG) persons. By comparison to the research focused on the parents after LG disclosure, there is crucial evidence missing regarding what this experience is like for the LG individual’s sibling(s), so I would greatly appreciate your participation in this study. To be eligible to participate, you must be a heterosexual biological sibling of a LG person and be at least 18 years old.
The survey is anonymous and takes approximately 30-40 minutes to complete. Your participation will remain anonymous.
If you would like to participate in this research study, please type the following hypertext link into your browser: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/heterosexualsiblingsofLG
In exchange for participating, you will have the opportunity to be entered into a raffle for one of three $100 gift cards to Amazon.com.
This research has been reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board for protection of human subjects at the University of Tennessee. Please feel free to forward this e-mail announcement to eligible colleagues, friends, and students.
Thanks in advance for your help with this project!
