Do you identify as part of a sexual and/or gender minority?

You are invited to participate in a study looking at the impact of the Australian marriage equality debate on your well-being.

Participation in the study involves supplying your response to a series of questions. You will also be asked to respond to some basic, non-identifying information about yourself. The completion of the online questionnaire should take approximately 10 minutes. Participation is voluntary, and you can withdraw from the survey at any stage.

Minimal risk is associated with participation in this study; however, some questions could create discomfort. Please refer to the list of counseling/support services should you need assistance. Participation is completely voluntary, and you are free to either complete the questionnaire or not or withdraw at any time. It is not expected that participation in this research will involve any risks beyond those encountered during everyday life, nor direct benefits. However, we hope that you will find some benefit from being involved in this research, which will contribute to our greater understanding of the impact of discrimination on sexual and/or gender minority groups. Upon request, you can receive a summary of the collated results.

The questionnaire is completely anonymous. Do not include your name in any space provided. The researcher will take every care to remove responses from any identifying material as early as possible. Likewise individuals’ responses will be kept anonymous by the researcher and not be identified in the reporting of the research. However, the researcher cannot guarantee the anonymity of material transferred by email or the Internet. Survey results will be stored on the survey platform, where only the researcher will have access to the data, but will not be able to identify participants. Once data collection is complete and exported, it will be stored on a password-protected UniSA computer server, and removed off the online survey platform. The data will be stored for 5 years and only the primary researcher and supervisor will have access to the data. Results from this study may be used for future research, for which further ethics will be obtained. Approximately 150-250 participants are being recruited for this study. Selecting ‘I consent to participate’ on the bottom of the page will be considered your
consent.
