LGBTQ, 55+ and living in Arizona? Share your COVID-19 experience with us.

The COVID-19 crisis in the United States has upset the lives of everyone, and may especially challenge those in Arizona who are LGBTQ and ages 55 years and older.

We invite you to share your experiences through a brief online survey of 52 questions about COVID-19 knowledge, attitudes, protective behaviors, and how the March 30th governor’s order to stay home affects your mental and physical health. The survey requires about 20 minutes to complete. Your answers will be anonymous.

We also encourage you to share the survey link with other individuals and groups you may know in Arizona’s LGBTQ communities. Surveys are in English or Spanish and can be accessed by the same link (below).

The survey study is conducted by Dr. Beth Meyerson of the Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW) and the Institute for LGBTQ Studies at the University of Arizona. Survey results will be shared with organizations serving LGBTQ communities in Arizona.

An Institutional Review Board responsible for human subjects research at the University of Arizona reviewed this research project and found it to be acceptable, according to applicable state and federal regulations and University policies designed to protect the rights and welfare of participants in research.
