The Docking Institute of Public Affairs at Fort Hays State University is conducting a statewide survey for the Reformation Project, a non-profit organization in Wichita, to measure Kansans’ opinions and policy preferences regarding the rights of people with alternative sexual orientations.
Docking Senior Policy Fellow Chapman Rackaway, professor of political science at FHSU, is the principal investigator on the study, which will survey opinion on the legal rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered Kansans.
The study is currently ongoing and the results are expected to be released later in February.
The report will be posted on the Docking Institute’s website, www.fhsu.edu/docking/reports.
The Reformation Project, an organization that petitions for the rights of LGBT people, will present the results to the governor, the Kansas Legislature and the public.
