If you are under 21 years of age, please take 15-25 minutes to complete the following survey. Your responses will contribute to our ongoing research on les/bi/gay/transgendered youth and the Internet. Our work aims to understand the role that the Internet plays in the lives of les/bi/gay/transgendered youth as they struggle with issues of sexual orientation in a homophobic world. Your anonymity is guaranteed. Completed surveys must be completed by the end of April.

Completed surveys can be sent via e-mail to Joanne Addison at The University of Colorado-Denver at jaddison@carbon.cudenver.edu. Thank you for your important contribution.
