Survey Request

We have received a request to pass along a survey from a PhD candidate about the importance of access to surgical transition procedures.

Redefining Trans* Persistence and Desistence Toward A More Inclusive Account of Trans* Populations
"I am a fourth-year, trans*/genderqueer identified doctoral student. I would like to invite your followers to consider participating in my dissertation research. My social justice based study is an examination of what, if any, impact access to surgical transition procedures have on transgender (trans*) gender identity. The study explores the following: Is access to surgical transition procedures an important aspect of a trans* gender identity? What barriers exist for trans* populations to accessing surgical transition procedures? Finally, what extent do barriers limit access to surgical transition procedures? Participation will take about 20 minutes and will involve responding to two brief questionnaires presented online. All data related to your participation will be kept anonymous. To participate in this study, you must be a transgender individual at least 18 years of age, self-identify as a trans* individual, live in the United States, and read and comprehend English."
