The LITE Study: Leading Innovation for Transgender Women’s Health and Empowerment

The LITE Study

This study will be the first multi-site cohort of trans people in the United States!  We will enroll 1,100 transgender people across five US cities (Boston, New York, Baltimore-Washington DC, Atlanta and Miami). The purpose of this research study is to learn about the health and wellbeing (including sexual health) of trans people.

You may be eligible to participate if you are:

  • A trans person (MTF) or gender non-conforming and assigned male at birth
  • 18 years or older
  • Living in or around Boston
  • Speak English and/or Spanish

What you should know

Participants may be eligible to earn up to $450 over the course of 2 years.

In addition to the HIV/STI testing, participants will be asked to complete a survey questionnaire every 3 months.
