Research survey  - esp. for people raised by same-sex parents

Hi there!
My name is Adèle (she/her) and I am a year three psychology student at Erasmus University Rotterdam. For my bachelor's thesis, I am conducting research on the psychological well-being of adults (18+) that were raised by different and same-sex couples.
Therefore, I'm looking for people 18+ who were raised by different or same-sex parents to take this survey. However, I'm having trouble finding people raised by same sex parents which is why I'm reaching out in hopes that you can help me reach more people.
Data is collected anonymously! It should take around 15 to 20 min. so to compensate, at the end of the survey you can indicate if you would like to enter yourself in a raffle to win one of two 15$/euro vouchers.
I would appreciate it so much if you could share this with people who you think would be willing to participate or pass the message along. View the flyer
Thank you so much in advance and have a lovely day.
Please let me know if I can give you any more info at: avergne.adele@gmail.com
PS: the survey can be taken in English, French, or Dutch :) at tinyurl.com/alsurveyeur.
