Participant Callout

Are you trans, Two-Spirit, nonbinary or gender diverse?  Would you like to share your experiences accessing health care services & supports in BC? We want to hear from you!

Who can participate?

We would like to speak with trans, Two-Spirit, nonbinary and gender diverse people about your experiences accessing health care services and social supports. Participants must be:

  • 14 years of age or older
  • a resident of BC
  • fluent in English, and
  • have a gender identity which is different from the sex you were assigned at birth.

What is the research?

The Trans Health Research Project is a three-year study co-led by PACE Society and Dr. Jill Chettiar looking at trans, Two-Spirit, nonbinary and gender diverse people’s experiences with health care and support services in BC. This provincial data focused on the issues that impact access to high quality health care for trans people in BC may be used by community organizers, stakeholders and decision makers to develop evidence-based strategies to address trans people’s health needs in the province.

What does it involve?

An in-depth interview that is:
  • confidential
  • lasts 1.5-2 hours, and
  • can be done in person in our Vancouver office, over the phone, or online via secure videoconferencing (e.g. Zoom).

How will you benefit?

Participants will receive a $50 honorarium in appreciation of your time. Findings will be shared with community organizers, stakeholders and decision makers to help them develop evidence-based strategies to improve health care for trans people in BC.
