Experiences of sexuality post stroke in LGBTQI+ persons and their partners

Researchers from the University of Sydney are conducting a research study about the experiences of sexuality post stroke in LGBTQI+ stroke survivors and their partners. The study will help to identify and understand the effects of stroke on relationships, intimacy and sexuality on LGBTQI+ stroke survivors and their partners.

The study is open to people who are:

  • Aged 18 years and older
  • living in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada or United Kingdom
  • identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning or intersex
  • have experienced a stroke, or are a partner of a person who has experienced a stroke.

Taking part in the study involves an interview with the researcher that can be completed via Zoom (video conferencing).

Further information about the study is available at www.tinyurl.com/LGBTQI-stroke-study.

The study has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee at the University of Sydney [2021/719].
