CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Trans women and physical activity

Do you currently participate in sport or group physical activity? An exciting new indicative is being undertaken by La Trobe University.

What does the research involve?

• The aim of the study is to explore the perceived influences that sport and group physical activity has on social integration and vocal communication for trans women individuals.
• By researching transsexual women’s experiences in activity environments, it will provide evidence on whether sport and group physical activity provides a positive environment to engage with peers and facilitate social integration. This project will also add valuable research to the status of Australian transsexual population’s health and wellbeing.
•It will involve taking part in one interview, approximately 45mins and will discuss your experiences
If you currently play a sport or are involved in group physical activity we would be interested in talking to you.


CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Gender Diversity Study

  • What were your experiences during your youth?
  • How do you feel about the labels “male” and “female”?
  • What do you think would help support gender diverse youth?


Tell us your story!

I am a Masters student from Macquarie University and am conducting research exploring the experiences of gender identity issues during youth.

If you are a gender diverse individual aged 18-35 in Australia, I would be interested in talking with you about your experiences.

Your participation is completely voluntary and confidential. You may withdraw from the interview at any time. The interview will be approximately one hour.

If you choose to participate, a $30 Coles Group and Myer gift card will be offered to reimburse you for your time.

If this research interests you or if you have any questions, I invite you to email me for additional details.
