Help by participating in an important study on the health care needs of lesbian and bisexual women in Los Angeles County and the Bay Area! We are interested in learning about how you've been treated when seeking medical care, your experiences with health care providers, and your overall experiences with your health care. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD...

Our goal is to reach lesbian and bisexual women of all ages who live in Los Angeles County or the Bay Area. We would especially like to hear from lesbian and bisexual women of color and young women ages 18-24 as their voices are often unheard. We also want to make sure that lesbian and bisexual women over 65 participate because they rely more frequently on the health care system. Help us by committing yourself and at least 3 other people you know to completing the survey.

Since much of the study is based on volunteer efforts and we have limited funds, we ask that if you request a survey that you fill it out. Each survey, with its mailing, printing, and return postage costs us approximately $7.00. So, if for whatever reason you don't want to fill out the survey once you receive it, please either pass it on so that someone else can fill it out or send it back to us.

The survey is 100% anonymous and will arrive in an envelope with no identifying information about its content or the project. Once we've sent you the survey, we won't contact you anymore unless you specifically request further correspondence. We promise that you will not be put on any lists or have your information sold to other parties. As researchers we are required to protect your information.

Feel free to explore our website to learn more about us and our efforts. If you still have questions, please e-mail us at or call (310) 206-5160. Also feel free to contact us if you have ideas or can volunteer to help us reach other lesbian and bisexual women in your area. We would love to hear from you!
