Discussing Transgender Topics within Gay-Straight Alliances: Factors that Could Promote More Frequent Conversations.

Int J Transgend 2018 7;19(2):119-131. Epub 2018 Mar 7.

New York University.

Background: Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) have potential to facilitate conversations on transgender and gender diversity issues among members. We examined how frequently GSA members discussed transgender and gender diversity topics within GSAs, whether GSAs varied from one another in the extent to which these conversations occurred, and identified factors that distinguished which members and GSAs discussed such topics more often than others.

Methods: Participants were 295 members of 33 high school GSAs in the state of Massachusetts who completed surveys that assessed their experiences within their GSA. Read More

Transactional Pathways of Transgender Identity Development in Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Youth and Caregivers from the Trans Youth Family Study.

Int J Transgend 2017 1;18(3):243-263. Epub 2017 May 1.

Department of Psychiatry, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio.

Background: A growing body of research has examined transgender identity development, but no studies have investigated developmental pathways as a transactional process between youth and caregivers, incorporating perspectives from multiple family members. The aim of this study was to conceptualize pathways of transgender identity development using narratives from both transgender and gender nonconforming (TGN) youth and their cisgender (non-transgender) caregivers.

Methods: The sample included 16 families, with 16 TGN youth, ages 7-18 years, and 29 cisgender caregivers ( = 45 family members). Read More

Gender Affirmation and Body Modification Among Transgender Persons in Bogotá, Colombia.

Int J Transgend 2015;16(2):103-115

Department of Psychology, The George Washington University, Washington, DC.

This paper examined structural, social, and personal characteristics that shape the processes of gender affirmation and body modification among transgender persons (assigned male at birth) in Bogotá, Colombia. Qualitative data from life-history interviews (N=14) and a focus group (N=11) explored research questions concerning the ways in which the internal psychological and external contextual processes influence individuals' decisions and behaviors concerning hormonal treatment, injections, or surgery. Research questions concerning practices and consequences of treatment performed without medical supervision were addressed through qualitative data, as well as quantitative data from 58 transgender participants.

Prevalence of Pregnancy Involvement Among Canadian Transgender Youth and its Relation to Mental Health, Sexual Health, and Gender Identity.

Int J Transgend 2016 26;17(3-4):107-113. Epub 2016 Aug 26.

Stigma and Resilience Among Vulnerable Youth Centre, School of Nursing, University of British Columbia, T222-2211 Wesbrook Mall, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6T 2B5.

While little research has been conducted into the reproductive experiences of transgender people, available evidence suggests that like cisgender people, most transgender people endorse a desire for these experiences. This study explores the pregnancy experiences and related health factors among transgender and gender-diverse 14-25 year olds using a national Canadian sample ( = 923). Results indicated that 26 (5%) transgender youth reported a pregnancy experience in the past and the prevalence among 14-18 year olds was comparable to population-based estimates using the same question in the British Columbia Adolescent Health Survey.

Recruiting, Linking, and Retaining High-risk Transgender Women into HIV Prevention and Care Services: An Overview of Barriers, Strategies, and Lessons Learned.

Int J Transgend 2015;16(4):209-221. Epub 2016 Jan 20.

Friends Research Institute, Inc., Los Angeles, CA 90028.

Despite disproportionately high HIV prevalence rates and high risk for HIV acquisition and transmission, trans women in the United States are less likely than other high-risk populations to be aware of their HIV status or to perceive HIV infection as a serious health threat. Furthermore, concurrently high rates of unstable housing, few legal employment opportunities, lack of social support, and distrust of social service providers limit trans women's interest or ability to be recruited by, retained within, or linked into HIV prevention and care services. This article provides an overview of the barriers that prevent many high-risk trans women from being recruited, linked, and retained within HIV prevention and care services as well as accessing HIV testing services, and discusses several strategies for overcoming these barriers.

Using Photovoice, Latina Transgender Women Identify Priorities in a New Immigrant-Destination State.

Int J Transgend 2015;16(2):80-96. Epub 2015 Oct 15.

Social Sciences and Health Policy, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Little is known about the immigrant Latino/a transgender community in the southeastern United States. This study used photovoice, a methodology aligned with community-based participatory research, to explore needs, assets, and priorities of Latina transgender women in North Carolina. Nine immigrant Latina male-to-female transgender women documented their daily experiences through photography, engaged in empowerment-based photo-discussions, and organized a bilingual community forum to move knowledge to action.

Adult Attachment and Transgender Identity in the Italian Context: Clinical Implications and Suggestions for Further Research.

Int J Transgend 2015;16(1):49-61

Department of Neurosciences and Reproductive and Odontostomatologic Sciences.

Introduction: Although attachment theory has been recognized as one of the main reference for the study of the general wellbeing, little research has been focused on the attachment styles of transgender people. Attachment styles are deeply influenced by the earliest relationships with caregivers, which, for gender nonconforming children, are often characterized by parental rejection. Consequently, transgender children and adults likely internalize societal stigma, developing internalized transphobia. Read More

Sexual Health of Trans Men Who Are Gay, Bisexual, or Who Have Sex with Men: Results from Ontario, Canada.

Int J Transgend 2013 Apr;14(2):66-74

Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, at The University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada ; Trans PULSE Project.

Recent reports have addressed the sexual health of female-to-male transgender or transsexual people who are gay, bisexual, and/or have sex with men (trans GB-MSM) using urban convenience samples. The Trans PULSE Project conducted a multimode, respondent-driven sampling survey in Ontario, Canada, in 2009-2010. Weighted estimates were calculated for trans GB-MSM ( = 173) for sexual orientation, behavior, partners, and HIV-related risk, as well as for psychosocial stressors and sexual satisfaction.

Access to HIV Care and Support Services for African American Transwomen Living with HIV.

Int J Transgend 2013 ;14(4):182-195

Research Analyst with the Prevention and Public Health Group at the University of California, San Francisco and a Research Associate at the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

Low access to HIV care and support has led to survival rates for transwomen that are half that of other populations at risk for HIV. Within the population, HIV disproportionately impacts African American transwomen. Interventions to increase access to HIV care and support are needed to better serve those most affected and vulnerable within the population. Read More
