THE IMPACT OF HOMOPHOBIC AND TRANSPHOBIC BULLYING ON EDUCATION AND EMPLOYMENT: A EUROPEAN SURVEY
[Please forward widely within your country networks.]
A new research project has been launched and needs your help! It is for people aged 18-35 who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or queer (LGBTQ), and is being carried out by Sheffield Hallam University (UK) on behalf of IGLYO, the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Youth and Student Organization.
The research is about the impact of homophobic and transphobic bullying on education and employment opportunities. If you would like to share your views and experiences about this subject, and help inform the future work of IGLYO, please complete the survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/europeanbullying (please enter manually into your web browser).
It should only take 10-20 minutes of your time and will remain completely confidential. There is also a prize draw for the chance to win a kilogram of Belgian chocolate!
The research is being conducted in Croatia, Denmark, the Republic of Ireland, Italy and Poland, so please share far and wide within these countries!
The deadline for responses is 31st May 2013.
For any questions, please get in touch with the lead researcher, Eleanor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks in advance for your help and support.
