Are you Irish, gay and in London?

Researchers at the University of Essex are looking for participants to take part in a research study which aims to investigate the experiences of Irish lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people living in London for more than 5 years.

There is a long history of Irish migration to the UK, particularly London. In addition, many Irish LGBT people have emigrated in search of a more supportive social climate. London has an international reputation for established queer communities and tolerance of sexual diversity.

This study will explore Irish LGBT migrants' reasons for moving to London and experiences there. Participants will therefore be interviewed about their experiences as LGBT migrants.
