The University of Iowa seeks volunteers for a queer and trans-led research study.
A queer and trans-led research study to improve care for those seeking GenderAffirming Hormone Therapy (GAHT). There is a lack of research about the genitourinary changes people may experience while on GAHT. This information is crucial for doctors to know so that they can better serve gender-expansive communities.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
- You are 18 or older.
- You identify as transgender and/or non-binary or consider these labels part of your experience.
- You have ever been on or are planning to start gender-affirming hormone therapy (GAHT) in the future.
Interested? Contact [email protected].
We know that when people have healthy intimate relationships, their overall mental and physical health is good as well. Our primary goal is to conduct research that gives back to the LGBTQ+ community. Indeed, we hope that this information can be used to develop culturally sensitive recommendations and programs to promote healthy intimate relationships for LGBTQ+ people.
Thus, in our project, we want to learn more about what can lead to healthy, and unhealthy, intimate relationships for LGBTQ+ people. Our project focuses on factors that lead to negative health outcomes as well as factors that promote resilience. We are seeking participants for a study that is completed entirely online.
Who is a good fit for the study? The study may be a good fit for someone if:
- They and their partner are both 21 years or older
- They identify as LGBTQ+ and are in a relationship
- They currently drink alcohol (i.e., they are not in recovery)
- People of all genders and sexual orientations are welcome
What would happen if someone enrolls in the study? We invite all interested people to call or visit our webpage to learn more (see contact information below). Each partner will earn a minimum of $40 for completing questionnaires and meeting with our research staff for a video call (2 hours). Each partner can also earn up to an additional $145 for completing all online surveys (Study 2).
Our team is very excited about this project. We believe that it can provide much-needed data that will ultimately help to promote healthier intimate relationships for LGBTQ+ people, which again is one of the most important predictors of a person’s general physical and mental health.
