Understanding the Long-Term Health Effects of Family Rejection on Queer and Transgender Women




My name is Max Ferguson and I am working with Dr. Alex Abramovich, who is the lead researcher on a project entitled ‘Understanding the Long-Term Health Effects of Family Rejection on Queer and Transgender Women’ (funded by Women's College Hospital).

We are currently recruiting participants. We are looking to recruit queer and/or transgender women, between 25-45 years, living in the Greater Toronto Area who have personal experience of identity-based family rejection (family rejection based on gender identity, gender expression, and/or sexual orientation). They will be asked to complete a survey and participate in an interview (approximately 60 mins). In appreciation of participants’ time, they will be offered honoraria of $25 and 2 TTC tokens to cover the cost of transportation. I’ve attached a recruitment poster.

Do you know anyone that might be interested in participating? Additionally, do you have any recommendations for different people to contact who might be able to refer participants?

Thanks so much,

    Hello everyone! The Rekai Centres Long Term Care Homes has embarked on an inclusivity journey, and as such is considering the possible creation of a dedicated 25 bed unit for the LGBTQ2SI+ Community. They are in the research phase of this project and are conducting a survey to collect input that will inform and guide their next steps. Please take 5 minutes to complete this survey! It is an exciting opportunity to help set the standard for LGBTQ2SI+ spaces and services in healthcare, which is especially relevant as the population is seeing an increase in aging. Every voice matters! Thank you!
