Share your experiences of LGBTQ joy

What brings you joy? A group of student and faculty researchers in the Sociology Department are interested in learning about the joy that comes from LGBTQ+ identities. The team of researchers is seeking young adults ages 18-28 who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community to participate in an interview or focus group to talk about LGBTQ joy.

How can you participate?

  • Join a focus group or schedule an interview.
    • Interviews last about one hour at a time and location comfortable for you.
    • Focus groups last 1.5 hours, and pizza will be served.
  • Share what LGBTQ+ identity and joy mean to you.
  • Spread the word to others who might be interested.

To participate or for more information, contact Dr. Jenny Pearson at or (316) 978-7145.
