Participants Needed!

Staff Writer

Hello All,

I am a Marital and Family Therapy doctoral candidate at Alliant International University (San Diego, CA), and am currently collecting data for my dissertation. I respect and value your privacy online, and invite you to complete an anonymous survey at .

I am looking for participants who are:
(a) at least 18 years of age,
(b) a California resident, and
(c) identify as non-transgender heterosexual, non-transgender gay/lesbian, or transgender (or are a parent of someone who identifies as heterosexual, gay/lesbian, or transgender),

I would like to invite anyone who fits the above description to participate in a research study examining gender ideologies.

The purpose of the research is to:
(1) The study will examine gender ideologies among individuals with various sexual and gender orientations, and parents of those who identify with various sexual and gender orientations. (It is not necessary that individuals have their parents participate, or vice versa.)
(2) There have been very few studies examining the transgender population. Sadly, many of the studies conducted pathologize gender variant individuals. Gender ideologies seem like a big part of transgender identification. No previous study has compared gender ideologies among these groups.
(3) I believe the knowledge gained from this study will help therapists in addressing issues related to sexual and gender orientation. I also hope that this study will contribute to further understanding of the understudied and underserved transgender population.

I would appreciate if you could complete it at your earliest convenience.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,

Jennifer Mato, M.A.

I have also attached a flyer, if anyone is willing or able to circulate the information further.
