"Hello! My name is Melanie Fann, and I am a third year graduate student
in the College of Education at Lehigh University. I am conducting a
study on the life experiences and well-being of sexual minority women.
It is my hope that with this study, I can contribute to the
understanding of the experiences of women who identify as lesbian,
bisexual, queer, or other sexual minority orientations. Your
participation is essential to achieving this goal, so I hope that you
will take part in this study.
In order to participate, you must identify as a woman, a sexual
minority person (e.g., lesbian, bisexual, queer, or other sexual
minority orientation), currently live in North America, and be 18
years of age or older. If you would like to participate in this study,

Thank you VERY much in advance for your time! Please feel free to

University Institutional Review Board (#12/227).

Don't worry, I just finished the survey and it's very inclusive and might take 20-30 minutes of your time. :)
