My PhD research explores the impact of non-heterosexuality within sibling relationships. By drawing upon a qualitative mixed methods approach this research seeks to gain a more sophisticated understanding of the ways in which sexuality is disclosed and negotiated between siblings and how this can impact and reconfigure sibling relationships.
