The following is selected data and analysis from a survey of gays in Madison. Introduction, page 2 II. History and Methodology, page 3 III.
Demographic Information, page 6 IV. Key Findings, page 10 V. Complete Survey Data, page 16 VI. Future Improvements, page 32 VII. It is the first survey of it's kind in Madison. The goals of the survey were to: 1 increase the understanding of gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered people within their community, as well as in the broader community; 2 identify the needs and priorities of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community; 3 document the nature of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender relationships, families, health, upbringing, politics, and religion; and, 4 document the existence and extent of discrimination and abuse that occurs against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.
Although people represents. And, in spite of all of the efforts made to reach a broad range of people, it remains very difficult to successfully survey those people who are lesbian, gay, or bisexual but choose not to ever be identified as such. Tom Otto mentioned his desire to survey the community to find out what was needed from MGLRC, as well as what the business community might offer individuals. Chad LaFlash had experience designing and executing surveys through his professional employment, and a personal interest in this topic as well, and offered to investigate the project further.
Jerry helped analyze the Northstar survey, a needs assessment survey conducted by Minnesota's Gay and Lesbian Community Action Council. The Northstar survey was among the first survey developed by and for the GLBT community, and was instrumental in winning statewide civil rights protection for Minnesota's sexual minorities.
Supreme Court case challenging Colorado's "Amendment 2" in That amendment was approved by Colorado voters in with the intent that no state or municipal laws should be passed in Colorado which grant specific rights or protections to gay and lesbian people. Jerry's research on the Twin Cities GLBT communities was used to prove to the court that gays and lesbians are a "unique and identifiable group of people" who form commu nities similar to those of ethnic minorities, in part to avoid persecution.
The U. Supreme Court ultimately found Amendment 2 to be unconstitutional, ruling that "A state cannot so deem a class of persons a stranger to its laws". This information brought new urgency and meaning to the survey project. Early Efforts In the Spring of , planning sessions began to address funding, community input and involvement, and design of the survey instrument. A proposal was drafted to the New Harvest Foundation for a grant to conduct two surveys: a survey of the gay and lesbian community on demographics and needs assessment; and a second survey of the general population of Madison on gay and lesbian political and personal issues.
In fact, they were in the middle of collecting data for their own general survey of Madisonians regarding tolerance on many fronts. Many of their questions dealt with the topic of homosexuality. Unfortunately, they were too far into the process to stop what they were doing and collaborate on the MGLRC general population survey. Design Starting with the Northstar Project's survey as a model, as well as other national and regional samples, an original survey was designed for the gay and lesbian community of Madison.
Once a draft of 51 questions was developed, a list of individuals in the gay and lesbian community was compiled to edit and comment on the questions. Great care was taken to find representation of the entire community. After gathering all of their comments and making the appropriate revisions, a final draft of the survey, with 76 questions, was completed in August of The Development Team also gave suggestions for distribution channels and uses for the survey data.
It was decided that the general population survey would be developed after the gay and lesbian survey was completed see Survey of the Madison Area on Homosexuality below. Testing After developing the final draft, the survey was tested for any confusing questions, and to time how long it would take individuals to complete.
A group of gay men in the Milwaukee area were used, to avoid having them also complete the final survey later, to test the timing and any confusing points. The survey pilot took each of them approximately 30 minutes to complete. In addition, about lesbians and gay men were given the survey ahead of time in Madison to be sure the questions made sense to them.
Some adjustments were made to the questions and a cover sheet was developed to answer the common questions received in testing such as the purpose, confidentiality, and why HIV was not addressed. In addition to those channels, six public locations were selected for people to pick up and drop off surveys, and several organizations mailed out surveys. Within these distribution methods, 2, surveys were distributed. Paul Northstar study. The public drop-off sites were chosen to be geographically diverse and meet the needs of as many people as possible, while minimizing the efforts of a small group of volunteers.
This decision proved to be controversial in the lesbian community, and will be reconsidered in future efforts. A group of seven volunteers was brought together to handle the distribution and collection of the surveys. They replenished the blank surveys and emptied the sealed boxes for drop-off regularly through November. In addition to the public events and sites, several gay and lesbian organizations distributed the surveys to their members directly. This effort helped reach many of the community's "closeted" members who belong to organizations or clubs privately, but do not go to events or would not feel comfortable picking up the survey in a public place.
Surveys were also available at Rod's and The New Bar for pick up, but not for collection. Finally, Catherine Odette, of the Disabled Womyn's Project, was hired to help reach members of our community who are disabled. She created alternative formats for the survey braille, large-type, electronic, and audio and made them available to her project's mailing list. All of the site, event, and special mailing distribution was completed by November 30, However, The United continued to collect surveys through February, Posters were also displayed announcing the pending survey at the October, Ten Percent Society dance.
Data Entry Initial data entry began in March of All of the surveys were unsealed and numbered and five volunteers began entering the data into spreadsheets. After six months of this effort, the task proved to be too large for a few volunteers to handle, the number of individual entries turned out to be over , Chad LaFlash investigated some data entry businesses to do the work, and Jerry Kramer suggested a colleague of his who had done this type of entry work before.
Statistical analysis began in January and February, In March, Steven Fought wrote a program to quickly sort and display the data, which assisted in the analysis. The purpose of this survey was to determine the attitudes of Madison residents related to topics of homosexuality. This information, combined with the main survey data, would help the lesbian and gay community determine its needs and direction for gaining greater tolerance and acceptance in the broader community, if any.
After discussions with Chamberlain Research Consultants in Madison, it was determined the best approach to the survey would be a random telephone survey on a set group of opinion statements regarding homosexuality.
If surveys had been mailed, as originally planned, it was unlikely that anyone without strong opinions on the questions would return the survey, therefore slanting the data.
In addition, two questions were asked about how familiar mosexual persons, and 9 demographic questions were asked. This information could be cross-referenced with the opinion questions to help determine how respondents developed the opinions they have. From March 24th to 26th, , residents of Dane County were randomly selected and called by Chamberlain Research Consultants. Isthmus newspaper lent its name to the effort, in order to make respondents feel at ease about who was collecting this information.
Result totals and a broad analysis are in the appropriate section below. For full cross-tabulated analysis, refer to the separate document from Chamberlain Research Consultants.
Geographic Location Compared to the general population, the highest concentration of gay, lesbian, and bisexual men and women in the city of Madison is in the Wil-Mar neighborhood between Blair St and the Division St, southeast of E Washington Ave. Other higher-than-average concentrations of lesbian and bisexual women are in the Shenks-Atwood neighborhood between Division St and Starkweather Creek, north of Lake Monona and south of Commercial Ave.
KEY FINDINGS Below are findings that hold a particular interest to the community, or where differences exist between men and women or other sub-groupings of respondents , or where the answers are significantly different than the general population.
Very few are from the west coast. Disabilities or illnesses in this survey range from allergies and high blood pressure, to AIDS, severe mental illness, and quadriplegic condition. Twice as many of the respondents treated for substance abuse use self-help groups for treatment, than use individual therapy.
Women do better with alcohol though. Of people who attend religious services or meetings, the average frequency of that attendance is nearly 27 times per year, or 2. Those who consider themselves to be Buddhist have the highest frequency average 52 times per year.
Of the other religions excluding Agnostics and Atheists , those who consider themselves Jewish attend services with the least frequency average 11 times per year. On average, women attend services less frequently than men 21 times per year vs. Of the current same-sex relationships, those of men have been longer average 5.
But looking at the longest of all past relationships, women are longer 5. Of those who have had opposite-sex relationships, men have been in longer ones than women The longest same-sex relationship is 36 years, and the longest opposite-sex relationship is 42 years. Sexual Orientation or Identity Interestingly, although men and women tended to "come out," however they defined it, at about the same ages, gay and bisexual men were both aware of their attraction to members of the same sex, and acted upon that attraction sexually, at a significantly earlier age.
And, those that do go, do so less frequently 2. Of the groups with no specific gender focus, the differences are not great. Otherwise, there are no significant gender differences.
When asked to rate existing and potential services for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities, respondents indicated how important the service is to them personally, and how well that service is currently provided.
