We were contacted by a sociology faculty member from the University of Louisville who is seeking trans participants for a study: “I am a faculty member (sociologist by training) at the University of Louisville, and along with a colleague (also a sociologist) am conducting a qualitative, interview-based study of transgendered folks (all varieties, regardless of how identified). The study is IRB reviewed/approved.” — Dr. Richard Tewksbury
So if you are interested in being the subject of a study with folks who use the terms “transgendered” and “Transgenderism” without irony, here is the info:

Transgenderism in a Period of Institutional and Cultural Lag
Dr. Patricia Gagne, Professor of Sociology at the University of Louisville, Louisville, KY is conducting research on the experiences of people who identify as transgender. Her research focuses on any difficulties you have had during and after transition and on what has worked well for you.
She is seeking volunteers to participate in a one-time in-depth interview that will last about 90 minutes. Interviews may be conducted in-person, via telephone, or via Skype, as it is convenient for volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering or in learning more about this research, please contact Dr. Gagne (pronounced Gon-Yay) at Gagne@louisville.edu or 502-767-6930 (text or call).
This research has been approved by the IRB (Human Subjects board) at the University of Louisville.
