About the Project and this Survey

A community-based research project for 2S-LGBTQ+ people harmed by expectations of change.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
SOGIECE stands for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity-Expression Change Efforts. It is a broad set of practices, pressures, or messages, that attempt to deny, suppress, or change the experiences or identities of 2S-LGBTQ+ people.

The goal of the project is to develop support systems for 2S-LGBTQ+ people in Canada who have been harmed by the expectation of change. For more information see here.

This survey is for all 2S-LGBTQ+ people harmed by the expectation of change. Experiences of harm may have resulted from a myriad of different experiences and pressures to change, whether blatant or more subtle, including but not limited to experiences of religious-based harm.
