KLB Research is creating Research on LGBTQ Lives

patrons

Hello!

Thank you for visiting my Patreon Page and your interest in supporting LGBTQ research! My name is Dr. Karen Blair and I am the founder of KLB Research, where I have been conducting research aimed at improving the lives and well-being of LGBTQ individuals and their families for more than 15 years.

The funds that are raised through this site go directly to supporting research costs, whether that be participant incentives, software, research supplies, or support for student researchers. Take some time to check out our different Patron Rewards to see which one suits you best! We have everything from a great sticker or magnet to participating in a lab meeting or having your name published as a donor in one of our published manuscripts! Patrons can also receive early access to our research results, exclusive recordings of talks and lectures, and pre-prints of publications. 

Current Fundraising Goal: We are currently raising funds to support adding a post-doctoral research fellow to our lab. The fellow will work on research related to sexual prejudice and trans prejudice, focusing on how various ideologies predict not only prejudice but acting on prejudice in violent ways. The fellow we are recruiting lives outside of Canada and is therefore limited in the types of external funding fellowships that she can apply for. Additionally, she lives in a country where conducting LGBTQ research puts not only her career but also her safety, in jeopardy. Thus, we're doing our very best to find some support to help bring her to the lab here in Canada so that she can embark on the next stage of her career in LGBTQ research. 

We would be very grateful for your support, either in the form of sharing this page or by making a monthly donation (or both!).

In Memorium Donation
$1 or more per month
At KLB Research, we don't always get to study happy topics. We have studied anti-LGBTQ hate crimes, discrimination, and global LGBTQ responses to the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando. We are all too aware of the painful fact that not all of our past donors or participants are still with us. This is a sad category of donation to create, but we welcome anyone who would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one they have lost. Ultimately, we do this research because we hope that it will bring us closer to living in a world where being LGBTQ does not in anyway shorten someone's lifespan or reduce the joy that they experience throughout their life.

Goals
36% complete
At this modest goal, we would be able to create one high-quality video abstract for a new research paper each year. Video abstracts help us to clearly communicate our research findings to a broader audience, which is an important step in helping others to understand - and USE - our work.
