Results of past surveys

Presumed straight until demonstrated otherwise: The relationships between sexual identity, heteronormativity, sexual identity development and psychological well-being

Tamara Bejakovich, This research is a partial requirement for completing a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology.

This research is interested in how people come to understand their sexual identity, investigating sexual identity and its development, identity-related factors and psychological well-being, such as life satisfaction and happiness. I am interested in people from all walks of life and all sexual identities (e.g. straight, gay, questioning or any other label you apply yourself), as long as you are over 16 years of age. So if you fit in this open criteria, your participation is welcomed and very much appreciated. The survey is anonymous and confidential, and ranges anywhere between 5 to 45 minutes to complete.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me at
