Studies investigating health and wellbeing of transgender people have typically been conducted in medical environments such as gender clinics and through sexual health centres. This study set out to recruit the broadest possible community sample by using a range of recruitment techniques and an online survey. This methodology provides an opportunity for participants to protect their identity, and reduces fear of discovery or being ‘outed’ in terms of their non-conforming gender identity or feelings.
