I am honored and proud to announce that I have been part of participating in two major studies, pertaining to the transgendered Community, specifically Transsexuals. One , is the study conducted by the University of Michigan, as indicated below. The other one, was by a Major Health care provider, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in reference to “Health Care, needs in the transgendered community and especially, transsexual health care. I was interviewed for over three hours, citing our health care needs. I wish to take a moment to thank both of these Agencies, for finally conducting studies, to make our lives better, and endeavoring to finally give us a quality to life. I have added Dr. Bischof’s, E-mail, if anyone would like to have further information, or contact him.
THEMATIC ANALYSIS OF EXPERIENCES OF WIVES WHO STAY WITH HUSBANDS, WHO TRANSITION –MTF- SURVEY,
Thanks so much for contacting me.
I would be interested in speaking with you. I have a study going on right now that is looking at couple issues for trans men and women and their partner. It involves an individual interview (~60min) with each partner, then a couple interview together (~90 min). We are interested in general couple functioning and physical intimacy/sexuality for the couple. I am especially interested in couples such as you and your partner who have been together for a long time–and congrats on that.
I would imagine that your gender identity and your profession in law Enforcement might not have been the easiest to navigate!
I am located in SW Michigan
