Volunteers needed for Menís Disclosure Experiences study!

You may be eligible to participate in a research study if you:
∑ Were biological male at birth and currently identify as male;
∑ Are age 19 or older;
∑ Self-identify as a sexual minority (e.g., identify as gay,
bisexual, queer);
∑ Have experienced an unwanted or violent sexual experience as an adult (there will be brief survey questions regarding this experience);
∑ Have told someone else about an unwanted sexual experience
(e.g., doctor, therapist, police officer, family member, friend);
∑ Are willing to discuss the experiences of telling someone else about an unwanted sexual experience in a private, one-on-one interview that is audio-recorded.

The study involves answering some screening questions (see below) to determine eligibility, and then a one hour one-on-one Skype interview, if you are eligible.

Interview will include questions about your sexual orientation; unwanted or violent sexual experiences; what it was like to disclose these assaults to others; and your current mental and physical health. Interview participants will be compensated with a $30 Amazon giftcard
for their time.
