Research for The Purpose of Social Change

TransCare+ seeks to mobilize research for the purpose of social change. Research, historically and contemporarily, typically takes place on queer and gender diverse communities, rather than in collaboration with or directed by queer and gender diverse folx. At TransCare+ we want to empower our communities to develop and carry out research and creative projects by providing them with resources and opportunities for collaboration. All of our research and creative projects are community-driven, participatory, and directed towards social change. 

We aim for transparency and accountability to community and prioritize the practices of coalition – working together across difference to create change. All research projects from the moment of inception to the dissemination of knowledge is direct by gender diverse folks and centred on accessibility and intersectionality. TransCare+ believes in rejecting the tendency to house trans knowledge in areas that are inaccessible to trans folks. All research outcomes will be publicly accessible and displayed in various form, including but not limited to: articles, zines, art, video, graphics, etc.
