The Religion, Gender and Sexuality among Youth in Canada project has four primary aims:
- To explore the constructions and management strategies undertaken by young adults (aged 18-25), both religious and non-religious concerning their sexual identities, values, and choices.
- To examine the significant social, cultural, and political factors that inform the above-mentioned processes.
- To study how young adults manage their religious, sexual, and gender identities.
- To generate rich qualitative and quantitative data that will contribute new knowledge and to academic and policy debates on religion, youth, sexuality, and gender.
The project will fulfill these aims through a web-based survey, followed up by interviews and/or video diaries with selected survey applicants who have stated their willingness to participate in such activities.
