Research studies

Participating in research studies can be a way to give policy makers and others in power greater awareness of marginalised perspectives. Here are some studies that readers may be interested in participating in:

LGBT Community Research

The terms ‘LGBT community’ and ‘LGBT communities’ are often used, but how much do we know about how these are understood – or experienced?

A new UK research project aims to address these questions, and explore the impact on lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) health, wellbeing and ‘quality of life’, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council as part of the ‘Connected Communities’ programme.

For further information please see the project website:

Watching Women's Films

Do you identify as a feminist?  Do you like watching movies?  Watching Women's Films is a place for feminists who consume popular culture to share their views, thoughts and feelings about "Women's Films" today.

Please take a look at the website and take part in discussions on the forum:

Enduring Love?

The Enduring Love? project is a mixed methods study on long-term adult couple relationships. The findings will add an important dimension to understandings of personal and family lives in contemporary society.

Increasing knowledge on how long-term relationships work and the emotional and practical relationship work that goes into sustaining them, will facilitate more effective points of intervention, informing the improvement of policy making, governance and support services, and relationship education.
