My name is Carly Thomsen and I am a doctoral student in the Department
of Feminist Studies at the University of California Santa Barbara
(UCSB). I am conducting dissertation research on the ways in which LGBTQ women in rural South Dakota and Minnesota live their lives.
I am looking to interview women who love or desire women and/or who
identify as LGBTQ in some way, potentially preferring to use terms such
as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, heteroflexible, bicurious, and so on. Interviewees must be over the age of 18.
The interview is comprised of open-ended questions, so hopefully it'll
feel like more of a conversation between people who are just getting to
know one another rather than some stuffy research interview. Of course,
participants can refuse to answer any questions they are uncomfortable
with and you should feel free to ask me questions as well!
It's possible that the interview could take anywhere from 30 minutes to
1.5 hours, just depending on how much information you want to share with
me. All information is completely confidential.
If you are willing to be interviewed or have any questions about being
interviewed, please contact me at email@example.com or at
Best, Carly Thomsen
