Researchers at the University of Michigan want to hear from you!
We are seeking participants for a research study that concerns how transgender and gender-variant populations navigate gendered socialization following social or physical transition. Clients who are willing to participate will be asked to complete a two-hour semi-structured interview, which will be conducted via Skype (a popular video-conferencing program that is available for free download). The interview will discuss your experiences with gendered expectations, gender identity, and gender presentation throughout the life course (from childhood, through transition/presentation change, and into the present). Participants who successfully complete the interview process will receive a $15 Amazon.com gift certificate.
Subjects that meet the following criteria may be eligible to participate:
- Between the ages of 18 and 55
- Self-identified as trans* or transgender (defined for the purposes of this research as trans-masculine/FTM, trans-feminine/MTF, genderqueer, bi-gendered, androgynous, gender-fluid, or otherwise gender-variant, EXCLUDING drag performers and others with a cisgender (non-trans) core identity
- “Out” in one or more areas of public life (while subjects do not need to be out in ALL areas of their lives–for example, a subject might be out as trans* to co-workers, but not to family members–subjects who are fully closeted will be considered ineligible
- Have taken one or more steps to alter your physical gender presentation (this can mean conventional steps towards medical transition, such as taking hormones or having surgery, but it can also mean pursuing voice coaching, changing style of dress, using a different name/pronouns, etc.)
If you would like more information or are interested in participating, please contact Spencer Garrison (principal investigator) by responding to this posting, or directly at email@example.com. You can also read more about this study on our website, http://spencergarrison.
