Below is a list of the topics / subjects that have been covered.   Of course, life is always complicated and not easily compartmentalised, so there are some individuals who might fit comfortably into several categories;  however, the list was created primarily to help make sure that none of the main reasons why people feel like outsiders is overlooked, and also to help avoid duplication.   Sadly, a number of important topics are missing nevertheless:  it  simply proved impossible to find people willing to come forward with the particular kinds of life experience that we were looking for.   To some extent, this was to be expected.
