Interviews

In the first phase of this research project, we conducted 161 interviews in Ireland, Canada and Great Britain. The purpose of the interviews was to understand the everyday experiences of those who are concerned about or opposed to legislative, political or social changes in relation to sexualities, sex/ gender and/ or abortion.

Through interviews (and the online questionnaire), a key project aim is to explore the everyday experiences of people who are concerned about or opposed to legislative, political or social changes in relation to sexualities and sex/gender in the 21st Century. We are interested in what everyday life is like for those who have concerns about, or might object to, issues like same-sex marriage, transgender people’s access to specific spaces and activities, gay couples having children, the legalisation of abortion and other changes in Ireland, the UK and Canada.

We are interested in what impact, if any, holding these views had on participants’ experiences of home, work, school and public spaces.
