Matt Stone/Courier Journal via Imagn Content Services, LLC

My name is Emily Knowles, and I am a doctoral student at Northcentral University. I am conducting a research study to describe the experiences of LGBTQ+ collegiate athletes.

I am recruiting individuals that meet these criteria:

· Are age 18 or older

· Currently identify as a member of any individual group on the LGBTQ+ spectrum.

· Currently are, or within the last 5 years were, a member of a college athletic team in the United States (this includes any association, division, conference, and sport).

The activities for this research project will include:

· Participate in a 1:1 online interview over Zoom for approximately 45-60 minutes.

· Be asked personal demographic questions about age, gender, sexual orientation, school attended, and sport participated in. These questions are optional and can be skipped at any time.

· Read and confirm transcription of the interview for accuracy via email (approximately 30 minutes).

Your participation in this study is voluntary.
