In terms of the latter, public attitudes toward trans children and their parents can significantly impact experiences of inclusion or exclusion, including in terms of rights.

Transgender and gender diverse people have unique risks and needs in the context of sexual health, but little is known about sexual health care for this population. In 2018, a national, online survey of sexual health and well-being was conducted with trans and gender diverse people in Australia (n = 1,613). Data from this survey were analysed to de...

Transgender (heretofore shortened to ‘trans’) people remain largely excluded from involvement and leadership in the research conducted with their communities. As a result, few trans insiders (i.e. trans people who are also researchers) are ever in the position of designing, conducting, and disseminating knowledge from trans research. As such, socia...

Much of contemporary western art music relies on objectivist and individualistic frameworks of intellect which oppose any focus on subjectivity, embodiment or emotion. These approaches deny composers, players and audiences the powerful experiences facilitated by works which are of body and of emotion. We suggest that by facilitating a return to bod...

This article explores the intersections of human and animal lives in the context of violence and marginalisation. It draws on two studies, the first involving a sub-sample of 23 open-ended survey responses completed by transgender and non-binary (TNB) people taken from a larger study exploring the intersections of animal- and human-directed violenc...

Despite the increased visibility and knowledge in the area of transgender health, the sexual health and experiences of transgender women undergoing Gender-Affirming Hormone Therapy (GAHT) are still under-researched; often, the effects of GAHT on trans women’s sexuality are broadly miscategorised as ‘erectile dysfunction’. This study aimed to provid...

Queer(ed) bodies in punk subculture problematize deeply embedded heterosexual, cismale occupation of space and time. Traditional modes of media and documentation aid in establishing normative perspectives of who participates in punk, and how. Rather than reproducing dominant media expectations, queer people express and explore their self(s) through...

Background Transgender and gender non-binary people have unique sexual health needs and rates of HIV and other sexually transmissible infections that outstrip the general population. Very little is known, however, about their experiences of sexual health care, including how those experiences might affect sexual health screening practices. Methods...

Extensive literature reveals the many health benefits animal companions can bring to the humans who live with them. However, much of this work has taken place with heterosexual and cisgender populations. To address this gap, we conducted qualitative interviews with 19 trans and cisgender women of diverse sexualities in Australia who reported having...

Much of experimental, improvised, and contemporary classical music is mired in frameworks which value hyper-intellectualisation, technique, ‘pure’ experimentation, and theoretical distance from the written or performed material. In short, these frameworks are ‘of intellect’, focusing on algebraic or pragmatic approaches to sound use. These approach...
Conference Paper
Within many Western societies, transgender women and transfeminine people (TW/TFP) undergo Voice Feminisation Therapy (VFT) as part of their gender transition. VFT is an intensive, often long-term series of vocal exercises which are geared at modifying TW/TFP’s voices, replacing their testosterone-induced baritones with softer, higher-register alto...

The majority of contemporary studies on transgender women revolves around issues such as systematic marginalisation, physical/emotional/sexual victimisation, serostatus, sex work, and physiological health. While these areas of research are important in providing a picture of trans women‰’s lifeworlds, a significant factor remains largely absent fro...

There is even less data on proceedings or impacts of insider research in the area. Nonetheless, transgender people, and transgender women in particular, are a vulnerable population with specific needs. In other areas, such as...

Clinical perspectives on people undergoing ‘feminising’ gender-affirming hormone therapy (GAHT) as a part of their gender transition portray the treatment as a kind of ‘eunuchisation’. GAHT, most often a combination of an oestrogen pill or patch and a testosterone suppressant, is geared at increasing a person’s overall levels of oestrogen while red...

Many models of queer¹¹ The use of the term “queer” to describe the interviewees is intentional, as the term was reclaimed by 80’s and 90’s activists, and used to “celebrate, rather than castigate, difference from the ‘norm’ at a time when the oppressiveness and implicit violence of that norm was clear and undeniable” (Hall, 2003 Hall, D. E. (2003)....
