Welcome to the survey!
This survey is being conducted by two researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago. We are conducting a research study among approximately 100 adult UIC participants and 150 adult non-UIC participants. The purpose of the study is to examine religious affiliation and sexual orientation. We are interested in hearing from people, both religious and non-religious, who are attracted to individuals of the same sex, whether or not you identify as being gay/lesbian.
There is no compensation for participating in this study. We value your input and hope that you can devote about 15-20 minutes of your time to answering the questionnaire.
Participation in this survey is completely voluntary. You are free to stop anytime or skip any items you do not like. The decision to participate, decline, or withdraw from participation will have no effect on your status at or future relations with the University of Illinois.
This survey is anonymous: we will not collect or keep any identifying information about you, including your e-mail address or IP number. The information you provide will only be reported as group data.
Though the risks are minimal, they may include discomfort or anxiety related to discussing your sexual orientation. You may disclose your sexual orientation to others if you decide to take this survey in a public area. Therefore, we encourage you to fill out the answers to the survey in a confidential and secure setting.
There are no direct benefits to you for completing the survey. Your participation will benefit the field of psychology in obtaining knowledge about the role of religious affiliation in the lives of gay and lesbian individuals.
