A while ago I posted this in the hope of finding some participants…
A Study on GLBTIQ Christians…
I’m a postgraduate research student at Monash University in Melbourne, looking at the correlations between a persons gender and their spirituality. Specific to this research are the experiences of GLBTIQ people who have participated in an ex-gay program.
This project is to hear the stories of people who are gay, lesbian and Christian, to learn about their journey and to understand how someone can have a ‘gay’ – and Christian – identity.
We are looking for people aged 18 and over who have had experiences in ex-gay programs, who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex or queer, and come from a Christian background.
The project involves a conversation-style interview with the researcher, lasting around one hour. You will remain anonymous.
If you would like to take part in this project or know anyone who might be interested, please contact me.
My name is Rachel Goff, and you can contact me on 0401 818 099 or [email protected]
I’ve been very lucky to hear the stories of quite a few people, and have had some interesting themes and ideas come out of it. I’m now looking for more participants – If you fit into the above category, great! Drop me an email… but i now need some participants to compare this group with.
If you are over 18, live in Australia and identify as GLBTIQ and Christian, but HAVEN’T participated in an ex-gay program, i’d love to hear from you. Please email or give me a buzz on the above numbers.
Thanks kindly, and hopefully hear from you very soon 🙂
