‘Understanding Lambeth’s LGBTQI+ Communities in Times of Coronavirus: A Mixed Methods Study’, an event organised by the Global Diversities and Inequalities Research Centre.
Launch of Research Report and Photographic Exhibition: Understanding Lambeth’s LGBTQI+ Communities in Times of Coronavirus: A Mixed Methods Study
On behalf of the Global Diversities and Inequalities Research Centre, London Metropolitan University, you are invited to attend the launch of our research report and photographic exhibition.
Our mixed-methods LamQ+ study, consisting of three research approaches – a survey, Photovoice workshops and a focus group – identified the needs of Lambeth’s large LGBTQI+ communities, especially within the challenges posed by the COVID-19 and lockdowns.
The photographic exhibition specifically represents the experiences of Black, Asian and other minoritised communities who have been under-represented in previous studies of LGBTQI+ people.
