This section contains information on two research initiatives involving LGBTQ youth.


1. LGBTQ Youth & Media:

The I Will Survive? Study is a research initiative to develop and mobilize knowledge about the impact of digital and traditional media messages on LGBTQ youth’s resilience.  This SSHRC Insight funded project uses qualitative multimedia research to develop and support programming that enhances sexual minority youth’s empowerment and self-efficacy.



2. LGBTQ Youth & Health:

This extensive multi-effort initiative involves several research projects related to The Alliance for GLBTQ Youth, an community organization in Miami, Florida. This project was originally supported through a Faculty of Social Work Research Grant Competition S.S.H.R.C.  Institutional Grant Program (SIG) and a component of the initiative is currently funded by The Lesbian Health Fund of the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association.
