Titel

Examining LGBTQ+ Youth of Color in the Netherlands: An Intersectional Approach

Financiering € 419.630
Projectleiding Mw prof.dr. S. Does (VU)
Looptijd September 2022 – september 2026
Doelstelling

This project will study LGBTQ+ youth of color in the Netherlands in three ways. Firstly, we want to gain insight into racism and ethnic discrimination that LGBTQ+ youth face within the Dutch LGBTQ+ community, and society in general. Second, we will look at online and offline communities that provide spaces for LGBTQ+ young people of color in the Netherlands for positive role models, sense of community, joy, and empowerment. Finally, we aim to shed light on the extent to which experiences of LGBTQ+ youth of color are overlooked or ignored in design of interventions, (mental) health care and policy design in the Netherlands.

A Long-term Follow-up of Autistic Transgender Children and Adolescents
into Young Adulthood: a Mixed-Methods Study on gender identity
Deveplopment, and Health Care Experiences

Financiering € 48.948
Projectleiding Mw A.I.R. van der Miesen (VUmc)
Looptijd May 2020 – may 2022
Doelstelling

Multiple studies have identified a significant over-representation of autism among transgender children and adolescents. This project therefore aims to investigate the long-term outcomes of autistic transgender children and adolescents previously seen in a specialized gender identity service who are now adults. With information about their gender identity development over time, mental health outcomes, and health care experiences we hope to ultimately improve the care for the autistic individuals seen in gender identity services worldwide.
