NAT: Exploring the Impact of Animal Companionship on the Wellbeing of LGBTIQA+ Individuals

Recent statistics show that the majority of Australian households include domesticated animals. For many humans, animal companions can bring significant physical and mental health benefits. There is evidence suggesting that members of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, and Asexual (LGBTIQA+) communities may have particularly strong connections with their animal companions and report a higher rate of animal ownership than in non-LGBTIQA+ populations.

This study aims to further explore the relationship between animal companionship and the wellbeing of LGBTIQA+ individuals and compare possible differences in the wellbeing of those without an animal companion. Please read carefully through this participant information sheet which provides detail about the research project and what participation will involve. Participation is entirely voluntary, so if you do not wish to take part you do not have to.
