Project AFFIRM is now recruiting participants in New York City for an exciting new substudy. The purpose of this substudy is to explore the intersection of race/ethnicity, gender, and sexuality of Black transgender women living in New York. The aims are to gain a better understanding of sexuality by looking at how it has developed across one’s life and the positive and challenging aspects of it. There is a substantial amount of research exploring the mental and physical health issues of people who identify as transgender. We hope to add to this literature by capturing the voices of Black transgender women living in New York.
For this study, you will meet with a member of the study team at the AFFIRM offices on our Medical Center campus and would take about 60-90 minutes to complete. The semi-structured interview will ask you questions about your intersectional identities with a specific focus on your experiences of race, gender, and sexuality.
If you are 18 years of age or older and identify as Black and a transgender woman, you may be eligible to participate. Participants will be compensated at the visit. If you are interested in being considered for this substudy, please fill out the screener by clicking the link below.
