I did the "mini training" required by the school to "do research on human subjects" yesterday.
Today I was talking to a prof (who happens to be VERY conservative and totally unaware of alternative lifestyles) and he said he would be willing to be my "official name supervisor" so that I can do my research on a larger scale (outside of classmates, family and close friends)
that he will contact the professor in NY who he got his phd from, because that person is an lgbt activitst-and ask him to oversee and help with design and what not so everything is legit AND I will have another person as a recommendation for grad school!!
I AM SO THRILLED!
Totally not expected from this particular professor. But he was impressed with my papers (regarding poly) this semester and thinks I have a good topic and that it is a "new topic for research" and he's supportive!
