Research Opportunities - A Gender Agenda

Research Opportunities

From time to time, A Gender Agenda is approached by researchers to promote their research to community. This page lists opportunities that are currently open.

If you are a researcher, and your project will support the trans, gender diverse and intersex community, you can reach out to us at You will need to demonstrate that your research will be of benefit to the trans, gender diverse or intersex communities, and has successfully been through an ethics review process. Ideally, your project will have also gone through community consultation or an ethics panel process with an LGBTIQ+ Organisation like Thorne Harbour Health or ACON (however, this is not an essential requirement) to be promoted by us.

Ongoing opportunities


TRANSform is an ongoing research project designed to investigate the health and wellbeing experiences of the Australian trans and gender-diverse community.

Participants first complete the enrolment survey, where they provide their email address which is then used to keep in touch with them for two key purposes:

1.    Invitations to participate in TRANSform sub-studies. Each year TRANSform involves 2-3 sub-studies on priority research topics, and participants may be invited to participate in these via email. All these sub-surveys are voluntary – if people do not want to participate, they can just ignore the email.

2.    TRANSform research updates. Each year participants are also sent 2-3 research update emails to keep them informed of the progress of the research including any publications and media coverage. This allows participants to see the outcomes of the time and energy they give to the project.

More detailed information about the TRANSform design and impact can be found here.

Participants can opt out of TRANSform at any time, no questions asked.
