study on the experiences of genderqueer and trans* adults


 submitted to :

Hello, my name is Carolyn Greenblatt and I am a clinical psychology doctoral candidate at Adelphi University. I am conducting a study that explores the relationship between experiences of transphobic discrimination, social support, and mental health among adults who identify as transgender, genderqueer, and/or gender non-normative. Participants will be asked to fill out a confidential online questionnaire including open-ended and close-ended questions. 

Individuals who are eligible to participate are 18 years or older and identify as transgender, genderqueer, or any other non-binary or non-cisgender gender identity. Participants will be asked to fill out several online questionnaires.  There are questions about demographics, feelings about gender identity, how one thinks and feels about themself, 4 questions about suicidality, and one’s experience of different types of social support. Participants will also be asked to answer questions about different types of discrimination and victimization they may have experienced in a more open-ended format. All survey responses are confidential.

This study should take between 20-45 minutes. Participation is completely voluntary and participants are free to stop at any point, without consequences. There will be no monetary compensation for completing the study, although individuals may benefit from discussing their experiences. Participation will also help in developing a greater understanding of how transphobic discrimination and social support is related to psychological well-being in transgender and gender non-conforming individuals.
