"Just Gender" Screening: An Interview with Jason Lucarelli


What is it like to be a member of the transgender community? Find out during a screening of the documentary Just Gender on Friday, November 14 at 7 p.m. in Eddy Theatre. Hosted by the Psychology of Gender Research Team, the event is sponsored by the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Pittsburgh (GLCC) and the Association for Women in Psychology.

Psychology of Gender Research Team outreach coordinator Jason Lucarelli worked to secure funding for the event. He volunteers often with the GLCC and is working to collect toiletries for their services for homeless LGBT youth.

HC Chatham: What is the Psychology of Gender Research Team? What are you studying/working on?

Jason Lucarelli: The Psychology of Gender research team is co-directed by Dr. Britney Brinkman and Dr. Anthony Isacco, faculty members in Chatham University’s Graduate Psychology Programs.  The research team includes a dynamic network of researchers, practitioners, and students and is the home base for a wide variety of research projects.  Research topics include: social activism, men’s health, identity-based bullying prevention, and the psychology of fatherhood – just to name a few.  We also highly value student involvement in our research team and projects.  Many students work side-by-side with us and learn to develop collaborative professional presentations and publications.  The research team is a productive and active group of scholars – we present our work at national conferences such as the American Psychological Association convention, the National Psychotherapy with Men and Boys conference, and the Association for Women in Psychology conference on a regular basis.
