A few months ago we asked you to help us out with some important research looking into the experiences of non-binary people accessing healthcare. Since the survey ended, we have tallied up your answers, coded them, and started making some preliminary recommendations for a non-binary protocol. We wanted to ensure this process is as open and accountable as possible, so we are making the preliminary results available now and opening up a period of consultation to crowdsource recommendations for policy. If you have thoughts about what needs to go into the non-binary protocol, please get in touch by filling in this form or emailing info[at]actionfortranshealth.org.uk

content note: discussion of medical transition, some quotes discussing transphobia and non-binary erasure, some transphobic slurs mentioned

A note on methodology and statistical significance: the participants for this piece of research were recruited from Action for Trans Health through social media and personal contacts. This is not a random sample and as such should not be seen as representative of the entire nonbinary community, but instead as a useful piece of research into the dominant narratives underpinning non-binary peoples experience(s) of accessing healthcare services. The results are shown below.

If you find the images in this post difficult to read, you can download the results in powerpoint and spreadsheet formats. All data is anonymous.

    Interesting findings, although some of the conclusions seem a little heavy handed.

    Shame about the difficulty of reading the graphs. Some more thought of accessibility would have been nice.

      Hi, thanks for the feedback. You may find the labels easier to read by right-clicking on the images and selecting “Open in new tab” – we can look into providing more easily accessible formats as well.

      We’ve updated the post with links to download the survey results as a powerpoint or spreadsheet – hopefully this makes it more readable for you. If there’s still a problem please let us know. Thanks :)

    This is great! Thank you. :) My only concern is, I can’t read a lot of the graph labels because the black and white text on the coloured bars comes out really really blurry on my monitor, so I can’t understand them. But this is still a really useful post. Thanks!
