About the Project and this Survey

A community-based research project for 2S-LGBTQ+ people harmed by expectations of change or denial efforts.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
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. This project is supported by the Community Based Research Centre, with the additional support of No Conversion Canada. 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.
