Lesbians* for Arts, Culture & Entertainment

Research Project

A researcher from the University of Manitoba is conducting a study called “Safe and Inclusive Housing for LGBT Older Adults,” and is looking for participants for her project.

Here is the information on the project:

The purpose of this study is to understand the experiences of LGBT* older adults living in congregate housing spaces by identifying barriers to feeling safe and included in those spaces, and also to identify what is currently being done that helps older LGBT* feel safe and included in those spaces.

I am currently seeking participants to take part in a research project about the housing experiences of older LGBT* adults. By participating in the project you can provide valuable insight into what the experience of living in congregate housing spaces is like for older LGBT* adults and contribute to raising awareness among community organizations and policy makers:

To be eligible participants should:
Over the age of 55;
Self-identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirit, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Genderqueer, Gender Nonconforming, or otherwise as non-heterosexual;
Live in congregate housing such as a 55+ housing, or other housing units with a shared communal space;
Speak English;
Able to use a camera or some kind of device that can take photographs;
Able to attend a training session, an interview, and a focus group;
Live in Winnipeg.

You can contact Morgan Stirling (the investigator) at 204-297-2850 or umstirli@myumanitoba.ca
