LGBTQ+ Research Studies

Below you’ll find opportunities to participate in research on or for LGBTQ+ communities. Participating in research is a great way to give back and help advance knowledge of LGBTQ+ people and our culture, health, and well-being. Some studies may even compensate you for your involvement. Please note that Gay City does not endorse nor verify the information included (see Disclaimer below). 

Submit Your Study

Please submit your study by filling out our “event submission” form and be sure to:

  • Select “Research Studies” for the category
  • Use today’s date or the date that you will begin collecting data (whichever is later) as the “start date”

After review and approval, your study will be shown on this page. We would love to see the results of the study after they are published or presented; please email us at [email protected] when those results are available. Thank you!
