Natalie Williams of Cancer Research UK is doing an M.Sc research project in Prostate cancer in Transwomen.

She would like to include all those who identify as a transwoman, irrespective of whether they have received hormone treatment or GRS. It is important to listen to and include the experiences of people who identify as a woman accessing a male only cancer access/support.

LGBT+ students' beliefs and well-being (King's College, London)

King's College is looking to recruit UK students who identify as LGBT+ to take part in an online survey to help us understand more about people's experiences, beliefs and behaviours in relation to their identity and experiences of stigma. We hope that this will help us develop an intervention to support LGBT+ people who suffer from mental health problems.
