15th-Jun-2011 04:33 pm - 3 Research Calls
My name is Colt Meier and I am a graduate student at the University of Houston studying Clinical Psychology. I am involved with advising the researchers in the first two studies that I am advertising here.

All 3 studies have been approved by the IRB and involve informed consent.

-The first study is for partners of FTMs who remained with their partner through transition and are still with him. This is the FINAL call for this study.
-The second study is for persons who were assigned female at birth who are planning on beginning testosterone treatment in the near future in order to help their physical appearance more closely align with their gender identity.
-The third study examines the experience of pregnancy in gender variant people who were assigned female at birth.

Please feel free to distribute these as you see fit.

Thank you,
Colt Meier, MA
University of Houston

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).

In a CNN segment called 'Finding a "cure" for homosexuality?' by anchor Kyra Phillips the network has given the pseudo-scientific topic of "ex-gay" therapy and its proponents a national platform to advocate for their harmful and unsound work.
