Dear members of the LGB community,

My name is Timothy Stahl and I would like to invite you to participate in my doctoral dissertation, a study of how the experiences of lesbian, gay, and bisexual cisgender emerging adults are related to their thinking and functioning.

The study involves completing surveys one time. You are eligible to participate if you are an emerging adult between the ages of 18-25 and identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual and cisgender. The study will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Upon completion of the survey, you will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for one of twenty $20 Amazon gift cards. Participation is completely voluntary, and your responses are anonymous and confidential. This study has been approved by the St. John’s University IRB.

If you choose to participate, additional information about the study and direct access to the survey can be found at the following link:…/form/SV_eYhMydN8iXVTiHb

Your participation is important to our understanding of young cisgender LGB adults.

Thank you for considering participating in this study!
