Where the rainbow ends: The becoming of LGBTIAQ+ separations

Relationship break-ups among lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, intersex, asexual and queer (LGBTIAQ+) people are a largely unresearched topic.

This study seeks to gain a deeper understanding of how LGBTIAQ+ people experience separations, what their life situations are after a separation and what kind of support they receive and/or wish they received during a separation. To highlight the importance of the cultural context, the study explores LGBTIAQ+ break-ups in two locations: Finland and the UK.
