Investigating Hookups – A Queer Youth Perspective

Role: Co-Investigator
Principal Investigator: Dr. Ryan Watson
Stigma and Resilience Among Vulnerable Youth Center

This is a community-based study that I am super excited to be part of. We know that contemporary research on sexual health identifies “hooking up” as a part of normal adolescent development in many Western societies. However, most research on this topic focus on participants who are heterosexual. In this research, we hope to better our understanding of the motivations, experiences and outcomes of hooking up among gay, lesbian and bisexual young adults aged 18-24.
