This survey launched in March 2021 and is ongoing. 

QUEERIES 1 is a nationwide survey of LGBTQ architects and designers at various points in their career, including students and practitioners, regarding workplace and school conditions, challenges, and barriers in the profession.

The project takes the position that personal identities are political, and that quantifying and qualifying personal identities and experiences is important to both the diversity and sustainability of design professions. As LGBTQIA+ issues and queer spaces become increasingly important, engagement with the queer design community is vital to improve the design of inclusive spaces.

Below is a preview of the questions.
