Lesbians with breast cancer: Are your voices heard?
Alexandra Gibson's PhD project explores the issues of lesbian women dealing with breast cancer
Speaking with LOTL, Gibson commented: that "amongst other diverse groups of women, I’m looking for same-sex attracted women who have/have had breast cancer to participate in interviews for a PhD project in Psychology at the University of Queensland.
"I’m really interested in hearing your stories about your experiences of breast cancer, and what you found helpful or difficult. I hope to identify factors that help same-sex attracted women, and any concerns or difficulties that you would like addressed. I’ll be creating a booklet of diverse women’s stories, to provide a resource for other women to help them through breast cancer. "
Gibson says interviews will be conducted over the phone and will last about 60 minutes.
