Survey of Donor-Conceived Youth and Adults with LGBTQ Parents
We have assembled the following survey intended for donor conceived youth and adults who have one or more LGBTQ identified parents. Over the years the Donor Sibling Registry (DSR) has gathered information from a myriad of families, but we believe predominantly more heterosexual. We think the issues for LGBTQ families are both similar and quite different. The results of this survey will be used to both better understand and to begin to construct resources that are designed to meet the needs of our families. Our goal is to provide an accurate reflection of experiences and to assist families in having meaningful dialogue related to the challenges specific to our community.
Please note that this survey tool was designed by members of the DSR who are also identified as LGBTQ. Two are also licensed therapists.
A NOTE TO PARENTS: This survey is designed for mature school aged youth and above. Please review the questions to make sure that they are age appropriate for your child. Some of the questions deal with potentially difficult topics for families. Again, our goal is to understand our children’s experiences so that we can design and provide better resources for families as we go forward.
If you only have one parent, please answer questions for Parent B (bio parent).
PLEASE NOTE: Many questions will allow more than one answer.
We appreciate your time (should take no more than 15 minutes).
