research study on asian american lesbian identity

I recently heard from a research team at Teachers College, Columbia University, who are recruiting participants for a research study on Asian American lesbian identity development. They are looking for folks over the age of 18 who would be willing to be interviewed at Teachers College about their lesbian and ethnic identities. Here's some more information:
Dear All,

We are contacting you to request your assistance in helping us recruit participants for a study on Lesbian Asian American female identity. This study is being conducted by Dr. Michael Y. Lau, a faculty member with the Counseling Psychology program at Teachers College, Columbia University. We are seeking Lesbian identified Asian American women born in America over the age of 18 who would be willing to be interviewed at Teachers College, Columbia University for about an hour to an hour and a half. Each participant receives $15 for their time. The study involves having participants reflect upon their lesbian and ethnic identities. Participation is strictly confidential and this study has received institutional approval by Teachers College(Protocol # 12-049). I would appreciate if you would forward this message to any potential participants in the New York area that could come to Teachers College to be interviewed. Please do not hesitate to contact me at LJB2150@tc.Columbia.edu.

Thank you so much for your help!

I figure some of you readers in New York City would be willing to participate, or maybe you know someone fits the bill. Spread the word and help some folks out with their research.
