Please take this quick survey to tell us about what happens after you publish a paper. Qualitative Sociology. Qualitative data from three sources are combined to assess lifestyle characteristics of homosexual victims of violent crimes. Data sources include studies of homosexual fathers, participants in public restroom sex and homosexual victims of murder.
