I am conducting a study aimed at the adult population to learn about the formation of social attitudes. Participation in this research project is voluntary. If you choose to participate, you will be asked several series of questions that will assess your attitudes toward lesbians and gay men as well as your relationship experiences. You will also provide basic information about yourself. It is anticipated that it will take approximately 20-25 minutes to participate.

There are no known personal risks associated with participation. Participants can be assured that the information supplied will be completely anonymous, that is, no one will be able to identify you by your responses. Completion of this survey signifies your voluntary consent to participate in this research.

This research has been reviewed and approved by Towson University's Institutional Review Board.
