Have Your Say on Gender-Affirming Healthcare!

Belong To – LGBTQ+ Youth Ireland want to hear from trans and non-binary youth living in Ireland.

This (opens in a new window)survey asks trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming young people about your experience of accessing healthcare related to your gender identity.

To take the (opens in a new window)survey, you must be:

  • Someone who identifies as trans, non-binary, or another minority gender identity,
  • Aged 14-30, and
  • Living in the Republic of Ireland.

This is one of the first studies about how people in Ireland can access gender-affirming care, or ‘trans healthcare’.

The aim of this study is to look at the pathways and barriers for trans and non-binary people in Ireland who are trying to access healthcare related to their gender identity.

The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete and will be open until midnight on Sunday, October 15th.
