Being Safe, Being Me in the Atlantic Provinces: Results of the Canadian Trans youth Health Survey

To mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, the public was invited to the launch of the report titled “Being Safe, Being Me in the Atlantic Provinces: Results of the Canadian Trans youth Health Survey”.  Held the evening of May 17th at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax, the event featured a panel discussion led by one of the report’s co-investigators, Dr. Jacqueline Gahagan, followed by a Q&A period and reception with local trans youth serving organizations.

As explained by Shannon (2018) on the website of the Stigma and Resilience Among Vulnerable Youth Centre (SARAVYC):

The Canadian Trans Youth Health Survey was a national online survey conducted by researchers from several Canadian universities and community organizations. This report specifically examines trans youth located in the Atlantic Provinces. The survey included 122 participants from the Atlantic Provinces and used somewhat different questions for younger (14-18 years) and older (19-25 years) trans youth about a wide range of life experiences and behaviours that influence young people’s health. This regional report is a first snapshot of the survey results.*
