Participant Request: Minority Parents of Trans Children


Recommended Posts

  • Admin

Hello, parents!


The University of Texas at Austin is searching for parents of trans kids of color to answer questions regarding their experience.  Instructions for participating, if you're interested, are below.



We are a team of minority researchers at The University of Texas at Austin who would like to learn more about the experience of parents who have transgender or gender-expansive children who are racial/ethnic minorities. The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of the emotional processes, unique stressors, sources of resilience, and healthcare needs of families of color and parents of transgender and/or gender diverse children.


You qualify to participate if you (a) are a parent of an ethnic/racial minority transgender/gender diverse child or adolescent who is an ethnic/racial minority (e.g., African American/black, Latinx, Asian, Middle Eastern, Native American, Multiracial); and (b) are at least 18 years old.

You will be asked to take part in an in-person, telephone, or Skype individual interview lasting about 30 to 60 minutes. If you are interested in sharing your story, please contact Sarah Arango at


The email address to contact is in the image below, to prevent the spambots from seizing it.

      After talking to Dr. Crane.  I will only be in the hospital for 3 days and then be sent to where I am staying.  I picked up some cheap cotton underwear that I really don't care to much if they get messed up.  Then I am really thinking on dresses and sweats for my 3 weeks in Austin TX.  I will most likely be just wearing dresses as I heard if I can wear a dress or gown that would be ideal while I am doing my life around dilation.  I am planning on once I get to Austin TX on picking up enough wipes, pads to last me 3 weeks

      Knowing for almost 51 years. Just decided time is to short and I’m tired of putting this mask on so everybody but me is comfortable. It’s time for me to be happy.

      Personally, I have done this, but not on a regular basis.  I'm not too intense when I do it (kinda a dry shave) so it results more in a thinning operation.  So I do have some hair on my arms - just not a lot.  What has grown back is softer and thinner, I suppose due to the E and reduced T.  It's not really noticeable, but there.

      I have struggled for 68 years - been through a sorts of therapy - suffered and denied - didn't want to accept - was born at a time when transition totally frowned upon - too afraid to admit my root cause problem - finally with the problem ALWAYS roaring back - I told my doctor then my wife - found a gender specialist who recommended a health care LGBTQ+ organization and I went for supervised HRT. I was determined that THIS I go until I found answers and happiness. For me this IS the path I denied far too long but now am happy I took it.   What was your way to finally accepting who you are and do you find you are happy you did?

      Good morning everyone,   That's great Liz.   I slept in today, and just now sipping coffee as the birds are on their second round of feeding this morning. Redwing Blackbirds are back the two pairs of Bluebirds are still visiting the mealworm feeder. No other new birds have been noticed.    My Suzie is more comfortable talking about my transition with me now that she can also bounce ideas, and heart ache to her sister and brother-in-law.  We're still living like roommates for now and I hope she able to be closer physically as time passes.   Hugs,   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      I may not have had low T for years, but my body hair is black n thick. When it grows or I see some it sets something off in me, like ants walking over my body and it makes feel dirty and itch.  Arms are weekly, legs weekly, belly and chest is every two days (it is very sparse now though, but black). Face is daily. Eyebrows are getting easier though, as they're going white lol.

      Nah, I've seen cis-women who do that before. usually because their hair is especially dark. I've heard it's a thing in some Eastern cultures as well because, well, sometimes we get hair where we don't want it.   Hugs!

      Well I got to my shop, figured I’d do a little work but someone decided she needed to be seen. So here I am at work. I bet I’ll get a lot done🥰

      Ok, I'm inserting a new subject. I just started shaving my arms 2 days ago. I kept looking at my arms and kept thinking that this doesn't look right, so I did something about it. My wife thinks I'm being silly. She said that most girls don't shave their arms. (This coming from someone who hasn't had any hair on her arms for over 20 years). I told her "Well, this girl does".  Am I the only one who feels this way?
    • Maid In Bedlam
      That gave a me a smile Liz.  That just the sort of thing i would say. I like your supervisor 🙂
    • Jamie68
      Sorry, I just broke out laughing. That's awesome Jackie.

      Getting rid of Mr. Catheter was glorious. Well, not the removal part, that sucked, but afterwards (and not having to navigate the world with a catheter bag) was lovely. May the days pass swiftly until you can kick him out of your life!   Hugs!

      Congratulations @ElizabethStar! I'm glad your wife is onboard. Also that the wall gets to be trans-flag colors. I think our flag is pretty too.   Oddly enough, my spouse and I had the same conversation last night. I was bawling at the end of Wandavision. My wife was dry-eyed. Well, somebody had to be the girl.    Hugs!

      Wonderful news Elizabeth! The role reversal comment your wife made sounds like some my wife has made.   Delcina
