ABOUT THE PROJECT
This is a qualitative study that explores how transgender or gender nonconformist Latinx people negotiate romantic/sexual relationships.
Through semi-structured interviews with the individual and their partner(s), this study will explore other aspects of their life that inhibits or facilitates transgender/gender nonconformists romantic/sexual relationships that have not been examined to date by other studies.
The proposed research will also explore the impact of race/ethnicity, class, gender, sex, family and religion on transgender Latinx romantic/sexual relationships.
