Do you identify as TRANSGENDER, GENDER NON-CONFORMING, and/or some other NON-CISGENDER GENDER IDENTITY, and want to share your story with a trans-affirmative research group?

We are researching how trans individuals experience and respond to discrimination related to their gender.

To participate, you must (1) be transgender, gender non-conforming, and/or non-cisgender; (2) currently reside in the U.S.; (3) be 18 or older; and (4) have started your gender affirmation/transition process (for example, dressing most of the time as your identified gender for at least the last 6 months).

WHAT TO EXPECT:

If you are interested in participating, you will first complete a brief (approx. 2-5 minute) screener, which will determine if you are eligible to participate in the research study.

If you are eligible, you will then complete a consent form and an online survey (approx. 10-15 minutes). After completing the survey, you will be entered to win one of four $25 Amazon.com gift cards (sent via email).

After completing the survey, you will be invited to take part in an anonymous, audio-only (no video) Skype interview (approx. 90 minutes) about how you experience and respond to discrimination related to your gender. After completing the interview, you will be sent (via email) a $30 Amazon.com gift card. Given time and financial constraints, however, participating in the Skype interview will be limited to a pre-determined number of individuals.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.
