Investigating HIV Risk, Alcohol Use, and Stigma Among Trans Women of Color
Transgender women of color experience social and economic marginalization due to intersectional stigma, defined as the confluence of stigma that results from the intersection of social identities and positions among those who are multiply oppressed. As part of a long-term goal to increase access to trans-affirming behavioral health care services, we will survey transgender women of color to understand their experiences related to intersectional stigma, HIV aquisition and transmission risk, and alcohol use and recovery from problematic alcohol use. Members of the target population will be involved in all stages of planning, collecting, interpreting data, as well as disseminating results.
