We conduct research on issues and concerns most pressing in the LGBTQ+ community. Learn more about ongoing and upcoming research projects as well as the latest publications from ourselves and other researchers in the field here.
We are continuously running an online campaign celebrating our queerness by sharing stories from queer/LGBTQ+ people about what they love the most about being queer/LGBTQ+.
If you want to take part, let us know what you love the most about being queer/LGBTQ+ by filling out our short survey.
Emerging Sexualities -
In 2021, we asked over 3,500 of you about your sexual orientations, attractions, gender identities, mental health and wellbeing, and a bunch of other questions. The results from this nationwide study will be published in several articles in 2022-2023.
More and more people, in particular emerging adults
(18-29), reject the heteronormative gender binary and identify as non-binary. We have surveyed over 750 non-binary people in the UK to help us better understand this increasingly adopted gender identity. Are you non-binary and would like to take part in the study?
Who identify as non-binary?
A binary view of sexual attraction has often dominated the sexuality discourse in the past, but in more recent years a more nuanced and spectrum-based approach to sexual attraction has emerged. Measures to account for a spectrum based approach to sexuality has been developed and we have surveyed a number of people with varying sexual identities using these measures.
