This is a project to learn what it is like to be a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning young person today. How does having internet access change things? What is important to us?

Sharing our stories: the good parts and the bad parts.

LGBTQ young people are more likely to be isolated, discriminated against, and bullied. They are more likely to feel bad, and to experience mental health problems … But how do they deal with these feelings? That’s what this project wants to find out.

What makes you feel bad? What helps you to feel better?

Who is this project for?
13 to 25 year olds who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and those who identify in a different way.

This one is really easy: just do what you usually do! Jenny, the researcher, will follow you for one month, to see what everyday life is like for you.
