Community Members

Phase two of the work adapted a participatory action research method to center the perspectives of community members and to collect data that best represents the needs of Mississippi’s communities. Co-researchers – consisting of teams of local community members – were engaged in regions across the state. These co-research teams worked with the primary investigators to shape the qualitative data collection strategy that is most appropriate for their communities, to collect the data. This participant-driven approach allows the researchers to determine the best way to study LGBTQ needs in Mississippi’s diverse communities. Phase two was reviewed and approved by the Mississippi State University Institutional Review Board (#18-031). Findings from phase two will be released in Winter 2019.
