I’m running a research study on autistic transgender people’s experiences accessing transition-related healthcare. If you are both autistic and transgender, over 18 years old, living in the United States, and you’ve tried to access gender-affirming medical interventions, then I would love to speak to you! I’m especially interested in speaking to people who had problems getting HRT or surgeries, but people with other experiences are welcome to reach out. The study involves a 45-90 minute interview over Zoom. Accommodations can be made to carry out the interview over email. The interview will ask questions about your experiences of trying to begin or further your medical transition.

 As non-binary and intersex identities are becoming more visible and understood by the public, there remains very little data and research around mental health and related issues/challenges regarding non-binary and intersex people. The objective of the Non-Binary & Intersex Mental Health Survey is to promote mental health services, reduce stigma and barriers to mental health services for the non-binary and intersex communities, and increase the capacity of the public mental health system in Los Angeles County. Participants do not need to be a current LA County resident, just have either lived in LA County or utilized any LA County services. If they choose, they will be entered to win one of $100 gift cards in our drawing after the survey closes in late July. The Non-Binary and Intersex Mental Health Survey is a project of LA County’s Department of Mental Health, and has Non-Binary & Intersex folx involved in the administration of the survey.
