Action Alert: Transgender Community Needs Assessment Survey

Community Needs Assessment Survey – We need your input! [click on the “research projects” button].

We all know there is very little reliable statistical data about trans and gender variant identified persons – here is a? great opportunity to help change that!?? Sponsored by the NTAC (National Transgender Advocacy Coalition) and under the supervision of Claremont Graduate University, Elizabeth Green is running an online survey to collect statistical data about gender variant persons and their experiences.? This study is available to anyone residing in the United States, with a particular focus on collecting demographic and experiential information about gender variant identified persons living in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino, CA counties.? We are looking to have at least 200-300 respondents from the SoCal area and over 1500 responses from the greater US.?

In order to participate you must be at least eighteen years old and self identify as a part of the gender variant community (including but not limited to transgender, transsexual, intersex, genderqueer, cross-dresser, etc.) The survey is comprised of 75 questions and should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.? Surveys are 100% confidential and your participation is most appreciated.?

Also, if you would be so kind as to forward this message to anyone you think might be interested, including list-serves and organizations – that would be extraordinarily helpful to our cause.? We are more than willing to arrange for on-site paper surveys for individuals or groups in SoCal if that is more convenient.? Any questions, please contact Elizabeth Green []. Thank You!!!
