Ancillary Studies

We welcome the opportunity to facilitate high-quality, community-engaged, research collaborations that aim to improve the health and well-being of LGBTQ+ communities. Through The PRIDE Study's ancillary studies, a wide variety of investigators working on academic or community-based projects related to LGBTQ+ health can apply to work collaboratively with The PRIDE Study team.

Training Experiences
The PRIDE Study and PRIDEnet provide training opportunities through PRIDE Lab and through other specific training opportunities.

The PRIDE Study and PRIDEnet facilitate the training of undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, graduate, medical, postdoctoral, early career faculty, and other trainees and learners in order to grow a pipeline of skilled and competent researchers in community-engaged research in sexual and gender minority health. Collectively, we work together as the PRIDE Lab to provide each other with a supportive, rich environment to learn new methods and develop our careers as community engaged researchers in sexual and gender minority health.

Trainees participate in community-engaged research in a manner individualized to their capabilities and training goals. These research experiences may include assisting on research projects and tasks, disseminating research results to communities, and the mentored execution of research projects. Trainees work with one or more mentors within PRIDE Lab on these activities. Trainees meet weekly with the PRIDE Lab, a group of trainees at all levels who provide input, feedback, and support on research activities, works in progress, and career development.

The PRIDE Lab includes adult learners at all levels who are interested in working closely with community-engaged researchers in sexual and gender minority health. These opportunities are typically volunteer opportunities lasting a minimum of one year for 8-10 hours each week, though briefer more intensive opportunities are available and there are occasionally paid opportunities.
