I had this forwarded to me, and I think that it is absolutely wonderful that someone is doing this kind of research. Instead of just looking at numbers, or making assumptions, they are actually looking for the voices of the trans/genderqueer/gender variant communities, and their parents, and their partners. Please, if you can, and fall within one of these categories, please please take this, and help us increase the knowledge around sexual diversity.


Hi everyone,

I’m editing a book and would love your help finding transgender/genderqueer people, as well as their parents and partners for a survey. The answers will appear as quotes in the book, similarly to Our Bodies, Ourselves.

Want to be part of a resource guide for transgender and other gender-variant people?

Trans Bodies, Trans Selves features a line-up of wonderful transgender and genderqueer authors, and they’re looking for your help to make the book amazing.

Take the survey and your thoughts could appear in the book!

Go to for surveys designed for:

-Transgender/genderqueer people

-Parents of gender-variant children

-Partners of transgender/genderqueer people

Please forward widely.

YOUR VOICE is greatly appreciated!
