Purpose of this Study
The purpose of the study is to survey the listenership and former guests of the KPFT radio program Queer Voices. The information collected will allow Queer Voices to better understand and serve its audience. It will also provide insight into the role of community-funded radio in the Houston LGBT community. The project will take place between February and April 2012, and all responses to this survey will remain anonymous. Questions include: demographic information such as income, race, and sexual orientation. It will also ask about content preferences, donation history, and listening habits. This survey will never ask you to identify yourself and we ask that you refrain from doing so.

This survey should take no more than 15 minutes of your time and all questions are optional. All participants must be 18 years of age or older and consent to taking part in the study. Some of the information asked for is sensitive in nature, but the data will be encrypted and your participation is entirely voluntary. You are free to stop your participation at any point, and all questions are optional. The Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator may also at his/her discretion remove you from the study for any of a number of reasons.

There will be no cost or compensation to you if you participate in this study.
