Developing a new research funding application:
We will soon start developing a new research funding application and we would like to invite European partners to join us. The specific focus and scope of the research will be decided in collaboration with partners. We are currently exploring a variety of funding sources, such as the European Research Council: . We are particularly interested in exploring research questions in the following areas:

- LGBTIQ youth and emotional wellbeing
- Self-harm, suicidality, emotional and embodied distress 
- Intersectional identities, including class, cultural, and youth identities
- Sexuality, gender identity, and sexed embodiment
- Health and social services, tailoring services to minority youth, promoting emotional wellbeing
- Educational contexts, school bullying, how schools can promote wellbeing for minoritised youth
- Language and discourse, sense-making processes, the availability of discursive resources through which youth
negotiate (marginalized, stigmatized, shamed, and proud, resilient) identities
