For this A with Honors project, the student carried out a qualitative study to explore if or how traditional gender roles and identities are changing. For the study interviews were conducted with a small group of members of the LGBTQ community in a small university town, and one individual outside the LGBTQ spectrum and concluded that that to those who find that they have a gendered community, such as the community offered to women, feel less affected by the lack of a gendered community. For those who feel that they do not fit into those strict social communities, the community offered for their sexual preference, the LGBTQ community, is much more important to them than their gendered community.
