LGBTQIA+ populations are underrepresented and undervalued in research. SQSH uses long-term call data to identify community needs and advocate for LGBTQIA+ concerns among policymakers and service providers. The data we collect confidentially and consensually allows holistic, accurate representation of queer St. Louisan lives.
As the only group systematically collecting qualitative, holistic data on the lives of queer St. Louisans, we offer a much-needed evidence-based assessment of the local queer population. If you’d like to receive a presentation on our needs assessment data, request for call data on particular topics, or better understand the needs of the St. Louis LGBTQIA+ community.
