LGBQT Adoptive Parents in Florida Project: Participants Needed!


Clark Univeristy is looking for participants for a project exploring the perspectives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, and transgender (LGBQT) parents who reside in Florida and have been living there since before 2008.

This study is aimed at understanding how the gay adoption ban, as well as the lifting of the ban, has affected the lives of LGBQT parents and families in Florida. We hope to hear from parents who were ultimately able to adopt the foster children in their care, as well as parents whose children were grown and/or out of the home by the time the ban was lifted. 

They are also interested in hearing from parents who have adopted via other means (e.g., international or private domestic adoption) since the ban was lifted. If interested, please contact Abbie Goldberg, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology at Clark University [email protected], or 508-793-7289. Participants will complete confidential telephone interviews (approximately 30 minutes) with Dr. Goldberg or a trained graduate research assistant.
