ANNOUNCEMENT: Seeking Transgender Individuals to participate in a study examining experiences of gender affirmation


  • Do you identify as a trans man, trans woman, genderqueer, two-spirit, man or woman of transgender experience, or similar trans identity?
  • Are you between the ages of 18 and 50?

  • Are you available for an in-person interview in the San Francisco Bay Area?

 If so, you may be eligible to participate in a one-time interview for the Gender Affirmation Study. Participation is voluntary and confidential.
