Gendered Intelligence have launched a major new survey of the quality of life of trans and gender nonconforming adults in England, in collaboration with Dr. Jo Lloyd, the Institute of Management Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London.
They want to look at both the positive and negatives aspects of people’s lives to get a broad picture of how trans and gender nonconforming people are living today in England. Research on transgender people is sparse compared to other marginalised groups. By taking part in the survey, you will help build up data about where and how transgender and nonconforming people live in England. They hope to repeat the survey every year to keep the study as up-to-date as possible.
Take the survey: https://goldpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/…/form/SV_56ZOVoF7XQ0ZbH7
