Please let me introduce ourselves. My name is Yushi Sakurai, a current undergraduate student at Chuo University in Tokyo Japan. I have emailed today to ask if we may ask of your cooperation for interviews during the period of November 15-21.
Under the supervision of Prof. Dai Nomiya, myself and a group of fellow students are currently doing research on LGBT individuals and how they come out the closet . We are hoping to do a comparative study between Japan and the Philippines on this topic. Through this research we hope to contribute to a better understanding of the issues among LGBT individuals.
To go through with this topic we are planning to go to research to Philippine from November 15-21. May we ask for your time to interview any LGBT individuals within your group, for about 20-30minutes, during this period? We have time to do interviews on mainly the 18th and 19th but adjust can be done upon your schedule. If you may have no time, we would be also be grateful if we could know of any other groups who are connected with LGBT communities or LGBT individuals that may be able to cooperate with our research.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
We hope to hear from you soon.
