The University of Strathclyde, funded by the Wellcome Trust is currently working on a project investigating LGBT sport and its effects on mental health since the 1970s. The project is called Out on the Pitch, and more information can be found here: http://bit.ly/OutonthePitch
A part of the project is to collect oral history interviews with LGBT people who participate in sport at all levels, and we are looking for interviewees. The interview would last one to two hours, and be in a location of your choice (or over skype for instance). The interview would concentrate mainly on your life in sport, your sexuality, and the effect that participating in sport has had on your mental health. We’re interested in talking to you if you have a particular story to tell or if you don’t, and regardless of age or background.
The interviews will be stored at the Scottish Oral History Centre, and you will be in control of your interview and data, and may remain anonymous if you wish.
Please get in touch if you are interested in participating in the project, or if you have any questions: Daniel.firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:Daniel.email@example.com>, @dancallwood on Twitter or on +447817068073.
