What did you do for fun?

Participants are currently being sought for a new online survey that asks people who were living as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or queer women for some or all of the 1980s in Aotearoa New Zealand to reflect on their social lives and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, or queer women’s culture they participated in during that decade. The research is being conducted by Dr Nadia Gush as part of a larger project exploring the social life of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer women during the 1980s. Questions relate to the things you did for fun, the people you felt comfortable hanging out with, and the way lesbians, bisexuals, gay and queer women dressed in that most fashionable of decades. Go to the survey website for more information and the online questionaire.
