Research call for cis partners who remained with FTM through transition

Relationship Satisfaction of Partners of Female to Male Trans Men

How do I qualify?
Are you 18 or older? Are you a partner of a female-to-male trans man or a female to male trans man who is partnered? Have you been in this romantic relationship before he transitioned (however you define transitioning) and are still in the relationship now?
In order to qualify for this study you (the non-FTM partner) must be at least 18 years old and have not or do not plan to make a gender transition. Your FTM partner must also be at least 18 years old. Research participation is restricted to those who are living in the United States, or international participants who can speak and read English and are willing and able to use Skype. We are especially attempting to recruit partners of color as well as cis-male partners of FTMs, but all cisgender partners are welcome to participate.

Who is doing this and why?
Rebecca Keo, a partner of Colt Meier, a trans man, and a person of color, is conducting a research study on the romantic relationships of trans men. She is an undergraduate student at the University of Houston studying Psychology and LGBT studies. The results from this study will be used for her Undergraduate Senior Honors Thesis. The purpose of this research is to help inform researchers about romantic relationships that persist through a gender transition of an FTM. This study examines the non-FTM partner’s unique experience as they witness their partner’s transition.

What do I have to do to be a part of the research?
The study consists of an online questionnaire, which should take approximately 1 to 1.5 hours for both partners to complete separately. The questionnaires will assess basic demographic information as well as relationship satisfaction, physical and psychological abuse, and alcohol dependence. Upon completion of the questionnaire, the non-FTM partner will be asked to participate in an interview regarding your romantic relationship and experience through his transition. The interview will also last approximately 1-1.5 hours.
Both partners must read and agree to the consent form before filling out the survey and participating in the interview. This study has been reviewed by the Committee for Protecting Human Subjects at the University of Houston.

How do I get started?
If you would like to get more information or to participate in this research study, please email Rebecca at rlkeo929@gmail.com with the subject line: Partner of FTM Research. From there, she will ask you a few questions to make sure that you qualify, and then send you the consent form to look over. If you would still like to participate after reading and signing the consent form, she will send you a link to the online surveys, one for each partner. After you both fill out the surveys, then Rebecca will work with you to set up an interview time for the partner of the FTM (via phone or Skype).

Last call for Colt's FTM testosterone study

Are you 18 or older? Do you currently identify as a female-to-male transgender or transsexual, or have identified as FTM in the past and now identify as male but have NOT started T (or started less than one month ago)?
A self-identified transgender male, Stacey Colt Meier, is conducting a research study on persons who are starting T. He is a doctoral student at the University of Houston and the results from this study will be used for his Doctoral Dissertation. The purpose of this research is to examine changes in cognitive functioning, emotional reactivity, and personality due to testosterone.
In order to qualify for this study you must be at least 18 years old. You must not have started testosterone (or have been on T for less than one month) before the first testing session. You must plan to start testosterone in the next 5 months and plan on taking testosterone for at least one year. If you are interested, email Colt at ftmresearch@gmail.com with your first name and telephone number. He will call you for an initial telephone screen.
The study consists of three sessions lasting 2 to 3 hours each where Colt will send questionnaires to non-local participants. Local participants will be measured at the Univesrity of Houston. These measures will be conducted over the period of one year: first pre-T (up to one month on T), second 3-4 months after starting T, and third 10-12 months after starting T. You will be asked to fill out questionnaires that assess basic demographic information, personal transitioning plans, personality, and emotional reactivity. Local participants will take a psychological test that measures intellectual functioning. This study has been reviewed and approved by the Committee for Protecting Human Subjects at the University of Houston.

Colt's FTM Thesis Survey! Update

Hey guys,

Based on preliminary results from the first study, I am now running a modified version of this study which is also looking into childhood gendered experiences (still has IRB approval). The new study is hopefully also easier to navigate. The good news for you is that if you wanted to participate, but were unable to because I closed the survey, you can participate now.
Even if you already participated, but wanted to re-take it or elaborate on your answers and want to be included in the new dataset (and yet another prize drawing!) you may participate again! Your participation will enter you into the drawing for the grand prize of $250. The results will be presented in the poster session at WPATH (formerly the Harry Benjamin Society) this summer in Norway!

So basically, if you've already taken the survey last month, please re-take it...and if you never got around to taking it the first time around, please take it. Thanks guys!

Please send questions or comments directly to me: ftmresearch@gmail.com

cross posted everywhere, please pass this around to your FTM friends
