Experience of life satisfaction and acceptance in their religious community by people from the LGBTQI+ community



Dear Participant.

As part of a university cooperation project, we would like to assess the experience of people who feel they belong to the LGBTTIQ* community. We would like to highlight your individual experience to learn and to be able to help changing attitudes and behaviors.

The survey addresses your experience of acceptance and appreciation in your religious community or church community, life satisfaction and psychological well-being, but also perception of phases of spiritual dryness as an expression of a spiritual crisis. We are well aware that this is often not a lived reality and that many people have been deeply hurt.

Whether you see yourself as a believer or perhaps as non-religious: We would like to cordially invite you to take part in this anonymous survey, which takes about 15 minutes. There are no “right” or “wrong” answers; your personal views and experiences are important here.


All data collected during the survey will be treated as strictly confidential and will only be processed anonymously. Confidentiality and data protection are fully respected.


A commision for this church by church related institutions does not exist! It was created on the initiative of the coordinators.


Thanks for your participation!
