Effects of Discrimination on the Basis of Gender

Identity among Gays and Lesbians

Dear respondents,

Gays and lesbians are generally tolerated in our country but still experiencing widespread
discrimination. This motivates me as a student of graduate studies of Laguna State Polytechnic
University to have a study about Effects of Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity among
Gays and Lesbians. With this, kindly answer the questionnaire checklist and rest assured that all
responses will be treated with utmost confidentiality. God Bless you and your family.

Resfectfully yours,

Danica Lyra S. Ortiz
