What do social status and sexuality have to do with each other? Does gender affect popularity? Researchers from La Trobe University want you to have a say!

You need to be:

  • Aged 16-21
  • A current secondary school student at a co-ed school or you finished school within the last three years
  • Keen to contribute to an awesome piece of research

This research is all about understanding how sexuality and social status affect each other at school. You'll be asked to talk about your school in general, the different social groups, what you and people at your school know and understand about sexuality and gender, and homophobia and bullying. (And don't worry -  no information that could be used to identify you will be shared.)

The data will be used for a PhD thesis (hard and/or electronic copy), which will be made publicly available through the library at La Trobe University. The data may also be used in books and academic journal articles!
