“Discrimination and Psychological Well-Being Among LGBTQ+ Users of Dating/Social Applications”
You are invited to participate in a brief online survey (average completion time: 15-20 minutes) that aims to learn more about the experiences of LGBTQ+ people of color (POC) who use dating/social applications (“apps” or “hookup apps”), including how they navigate instances of racism on said apps. Examples of these apps include Grindr, Tinder, Scruff, Hornet, Bumble, and many others.
To participate, you must meet the following criteria:
1) be at least 18 years old or older;
2) live in the United States of America;
3) identify as a LGBTQ+ POC;
4) have used a dating/social app (e.g., Grindr, Tinder, Scruff, etc.) within the past 12 months.
If you qualify for this study and choose to participate, you will be asked to complete several questionnaires that relate to your use of dating/social apps, racism, mental health, coping strategies, and how you view your racial/ethnic identity. Responses to the survey are anonymous and you are free to stop participating at any time.
