The Scottish Transgender Alliance is today launching a UK wide survey for all non-binary people, defined as those:
“identifying as either having a gender which is in-between or beyond the two categories ‘man’ and ‘woman’, as fluctuating between ‘man’ and ‘woman’, or as having no gender, either permanently or some of the time”.
It asks questions on three main subjects: experiences of using services, views on legal gender recognition, and experiences in employment.
The survey will be used to give us a clearer picture of some of the issues being faced by non-binary people in the UK today, and to provide us with real evidence to use in our campaigning and lobbying around improving the rights of all trans people. At the moment, there is little existing literature on some of the specific issues faced by non-binary people beyond what we hear anecdotally from the community – and this is a great opportunity to change that.
If you would like to take the survey, you can do so at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/nonbinarysurvey
The survey should take around 30 minutes to complete. It will be open for 8 weeks, closing on Tuesday 15th September.
If you have any questions about the survey or would like to request it in a different format, please do get in touch with Vic Valentine by emailing email@example.com or calling the office on 0131 467 6039
