GritoBlast — A group of researchers at San Francisco State University are currently asking for support in a study dedicated to Latina Immigrant Queers. Latina/os are the biggest minority in the U.S.; there are a total of 11 million immigrants, and there is an on going debate about immigration, however, nothing has been done to fix our broken immigration system. Another present issue is LGBTQ rights, with inconsistent decisions between federal and state laws, it has created a nation wide confusion and this is taking a toll on our communities. Given these present issues we are in need of more studies dedicated to these unexplored communities.
There are no large-scale empirical studies in the mental health field that explore the lives and needs of LGBTQ Latinas who have immigrated to the U.S. from Latin America. Please help this group of researchers understand women’s experiences so that they can inform the mental health field about how to best support this important community! They are currently conducting a study that will explore Queer Latinas’ needs. The study consists of an online survey, which should take 15-20 minutes to complete and 12% of participants will be chosen (lottery) to receive a $25 debit visa card.
