Fertility Knowledge and Parenthood Desire in Childless Queer Men from Sexual Minority Groups

About this research study

The online survey aims to explore the fertility knowledge and parenthood desire of childless queer men, and the contributing roles of race, culture, sexual identity, and perceived social stigma in influencing their desire to have children. Your participation would help improve the scientific knowledge base surrounding queer men’s desire to have children, their fertility knowledge and understanding of assisted human reproductive services. Participants may improve their own fertility knowledge by completion of the survey. To participate in the survey, you must meet the following criteria:

  • you self-identify as a sexual minority
  • you are a cisgender male
  • you are age 18 or older
  • you do not have children
  • you live in Canada

Participation includes completing an anonymous online survey with mainly multiple choice and ranking questions. No questions in the survey will ask for respondent name, personal identifying information or anything that may potentially disclose the identity of the participant. It is estimated that survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Participants have the option to enter a lottery to win one of ten $50 gift cards. Instructions to participate in a lottery will be provided upon survey completion.
