What is my research project?
I hope to research trans people’s experiences of using gender identity services. I want to speak to people from both Ireland and the Netherlands, in order to compare the two gender health care systems, and explore how the differences / similarities affect the experiences of people using these services.
Willing to take part?
If so, your time, insights and experience would be very much valued and appreciated. I hope that this piece of research can contribute to improving the awareness and understanding of issues faced by trans people, particularly with regards to healthcare.
I am looking for people who identify as trans (both binary and non-binary) who meet the following criteria:- Age 17 +- Have experience of using Gender Identity Services in Ireland or the Netherlands- Willing to discuss their views and experiences of medicalisation (however, rest assured that participants will not be asked any invasive or personal details relating to their own transition) - Consent to being audio recorded for research purposes (All data will be securely and anonymously saved to ensure confidentiality is maintained)
