TAKE THE SURVEY

Sociologists for Trans Justice, an independent initiative to advance transgender justice in and through sociology, affiliated with the American Sociological Association, is conducting a national survey of transgender and intersex graduate students to assess their experiences in graduate school. If you are transgender and/or intersex and have been enrolled in a graduate program of any discipline in the United States at any time since 2008, we invite you to take this survey. For the purposes of this study, we use the term “transgender” broadly to encompass a wide range of identities, including, for example, non-binary, genderqueer, agender, gender nonconforming individuals, and trans individuals at any point of their journey or transition. The survey should take 10-15 minutes and your participation is completely voluntary. Survey responses will be completely anonymous, with no identifying information linked to responses at any point in the research process. If you choose to take the survey, you may stop at any time, and you do not have to answer any questions that you do not want to answer. No negative repercussions will occur if you do not elect to participate in the study. Individuals who take the survey will have the opportunity to provide us with your email address to enter a raffle for one of 100 $25 Amazon gift cards. Your contact information will not be connected to your survey responses. The researchers conducting this study are Dr. Lindsey Wilkinson, Portland State University Sociology faculty member, Sonny Nordmarken, sociology Ph.D. candidate at University of Massachusetts, Amherst; Simone Kolysh, sociology Ph.D. candidate at CUNY Graduate Center; and Rebecca Ewert, sociology Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago.
