Take the Social Justice Sexuality Initiative survey...

I was recently contacted and asked to share this information with readers of the blog. A team of researchers have launched a project called The Social Justice Sexuality Initiative (socialjusticesexuality.com). They are working with students from the Graduate Center at the City University of New York (CUNY) and several community based organizations throughout the United States to assess the experiences of LGBT people of color in the following areas:
  • access to health and community-based services
  • civic engagement
  • family
  • religious experiences
They have partnered with, among others, Queers for Economic Justice, Unid@s, The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the Zuna Institute, Gay Men's Health Crisis, the Unity Fellowship Church and the International Federation of Black Prides. Their hope is to fill the gap in scholarship on LGBT communities of color, as well as celebrate their unique experiences. To participate and complete the survey, in English or Spanish, please visit this page.
