Regulating the Boundaries of Motherhood: A Study of Trans Women’s Experiences in Relationship to Motherhood
Are you a trans woman and a parent?
Do you identify as a mother, father, or another term?
Are you interested in sharing your experience?
Trans women who are parents of any kind (step-parents, adoptive parents, birth parents, parents of adult children, etc.) are invited to participate in this research study to explore trans women’s relationship to “motherhood”. You do not have to identify yourself as a “mother”, or be called a “mother” by your children, in order to participate. All who identify on the trans woman spectrum are welcome, including those identifying as transitioned, two-spirited, gender queer, and more.
Regulating the Boundaries of Motherhood is a project led by researchers who are members of LGBTQ parenting communities
This project is funded through the Centre for the Study of Gender, Social Inequities and Mental Health
