This research will allow the voices of the grieving to be heard.

PhD researchers at Monash University are seeking participants for an investigation about the bereavement experiences of same-sex partners and the impact on later relationships.

The aim of this study is to develop an understanding of the bereavement experience of same-sex attracted individuals who have lost a partner. The research will also allow the voices of the grieving LGBTIQ community to be heard by the general public.

Participants must self-identify as same-sex attracted (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, intersex, queer, or other) and have lost a same-sex partner to causes not directly related to HIV. The loss must have occurred at least 6 months after the relationship was established and 12 months must have passed since the loss.

The research consists of 2 stages, 10 months apart. At each stage, participants will complete a brief online survey (10 minutes) and one interview (60 minutes).

Each participant will receive a $50 Coles-Myer gift card.
