You may have noticed some changes to our website recently. After years of collective work to document the experiences of trans communities in Ontario, we are wrapping up our work on Trans PULSE. It’s been amazing to see all the changes in policy, practice, and community advocacy since we began our work. Our very first seed grant to build the team came in 2005, and we held our community soundings the summer of 2006. We collected our survey data in 2009 and 2010, and we’ve worked since then to get a wide range of results out in formats people can use. So many of you in the community contributed your experiences to this data set, and your efforts to making this happen. So many of you are taking our results and using them in your professional work and advocacy.
The Trans PULSE Project is a community-based research (CBR) project that is investigating the impact of social exclusion and discrimination on the health of trans people in Ontario, Canada.
We aim to provide the information necessary to change policies and practices to improve the health of trans communities.
