The University of Memphis is looking for people who identify as women, whether they're lesbians or transgender woman, who have found community after moving to or coming out in Memphis.
The research study will address local issues of social justice through stories of hope, discrimination, isolation, transformation, and community.
From the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center's newsletter, where the call for participants was first reported:
"Such research is at the forefront of current American social justice research and has the intent to educate and sensitize communities by offering a deeper awareness of the joys and hardships of local LGBTQ lives. Our intent is to expose, contextualize, and raise awareness of the community experiences of those LGBTQ-identified women that choose to live their lives in Memphis."
