For LGBTQ Individuals

Coming Out Study
The Case Western Reserve University Department of Psychological Sciences is currently recruiting participants for an online study of LGBQ individuals’ experiences with the coming out process. The purpose of this study is to determine whether certain factors related to individuals’ relationships, family functioning, religious beliefs, and emotional experiences predict how “out” someone is. We are also interested in whether how “out” you are is related to symptoms of anxiety and depression, and under what circumstances. To participate, individuals must identify as LGBQ (non-heterosexual) and be at least 18 years of age. The study will take approximately 45 minutes to complete, and can be completed on any computer with an internet connection. No identifying information will be completed for this survey, and all answers will be kept confidential. Please follow the link below in order to participate.
