PURPOSE: Screening guidelines for breast cancer (BC) in transgender male (TM) patients are not well defined. This study describes referral patterns and compliance with referral for BC screening among TM patients receiving care at a tertiary care center. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study of TM patients, 40-74 years of age, presenting for care between 2017 and 2020. The electronic medical record was queried for medical history and cancer screening data...

We assessed acceptability of nonoral HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) formulations among transgender women (TW) engaged in street-based sex work in Baltimore, Maryland. In a K -means cluster analysis, TW ( N =36) were partitioned into groups characterized by high interest in long-acting injectable PrEP only ( Injectable Enthusiasts , 36%), high interest in injectables and subdermal implants ( Long-Acting Acceptors , 36%), and low interest across PrEP formulations ( Non-Acceptors , 28%). TW's interest in novel PrEP agents varied widely across formulations (range: 22-66%) and clustered around numerous relational, occupational, and structural factors, highlighting the importance of availing multiple PrEP formulations for this impacted population...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to test the association between protective and risk factors, including age of transition, K-12 experiences, and family support, on suicidality among transgender and gender nonbinary/gender queer (TNB) adults. METHODS: Our analysis relies on data from the 2015 United States Transgender Survey. We used separate logistic regression models to predict lifetime suicidal ideation and suicide attempt among 19,121 survey respondents...

PURPOSE: Evaluation and comparison of outcomes following gender-affirming mastectomy have been hindered by the lack of a validated population- and surgery-specific patient-reported outcome measure (PROM). The purpose of this study was to explore the lived experiences of transgender individuals assigned female at birth (AFAB) from before-to-after gender-affirming mastectomy to identify key qualitative themes that might inform the creation of a quantitative PROM in the future. METHODS: Identified candidates were transgender men AFAB, 18-65 years of age (mean±standard deviation: 30...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate emotional distress, suicidality, and help-seeking among Israeli transgender and gender diverse (TGD) persons. METHODS: TGD ( n =139) and cisgender ( n =275) participants reported on suicidal thoughts and behavior (STB), help-seeking behavior, and emotional distress (General Health Questionnaire [GHQ-12]) in an online survey. RESULTS: GHQ-12 and STB were significantly higher among TGD compared with cisgender participants...

PURPOSE: The nonbinary and genderqueer (NBGQ) youth population is growing, yet scant research focuses on this distinct group. We aim to gain a deeper understanding of desired gender-affirming care and interventions pursued by NBGQ youth. METHODS: A retrospective chart review of NBGQ patients seen at the University of California, San Francisco Child and Adolescent Gender Center from January 1, 2009, to December 31, 2020, was performed. Demographic information, desired gender-affirming care, and gender-affirming interventions pursued at initial and most recent visits were collected...

PURPOSE: The objectives of this study were to assess the knowledge of HIV and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in transgender adolescents and young adults (AYAs) and to test the acceptability of rapid HIV testing among transgender adolescents in a multidisciplinary gender clinic. METHODS: Participants enrolled on the same day as their mental health or medical appointment in a multidisciplinary gender clinic. They completed survey questions regarding HIV and PrEP knowledge and were also offered an optional same-day, rapid, fourth-generation HIV test...

PURPOSE: Poorer health outcomes for transgender and gender diverse (TGD) individuals have been associated with lack of health care provider knowledge and personal bias. Training at all levels of medical education has been positioned as one strategy to combat these inequities. This study sought to characterize preclinical medical student attitude, skill, and knowledge pre- and post-teaching with TGD community volunteers. METHODS: This matched pre- and post-test study was conducted from July 2020 to August 2021 capturing two preclinical medical student cohorts exposed to the same teaching intervention...

Despite the prevalence of HIV among transgender women (TGW), gaps exist in understanding the impact of HIV-related stigma (HRS) on TGW with HIV. This is a small cross-sectional pilot study examining HRS in TGW ( n =18) with HIV in Miami, FL, who completed a survey during an HIV clinical visit. In contrast with previous studies, results demonstrated low levels of HRS and suggest the potential of increasing acceptance of TGW with HIV as a contributing factor. Larger studies are needed to explore factors underlying HRS with the aim of further reducing stigma among TGW with HIV...

PURPOSE: Transgender women are disproportionately affected by HIV and are underutilizing preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP). The lower uptake of PrEP by transgender women may be, in part, owing to the perception that taking PrEP may lower the efficacy of gender-affirming hormone therapy (GAHT) or to provider concerns that GAHT may lower the efficacy of PrEP. METHODS: DISCOVER was a randomized, double-blind, noninferiority trial comparing emtricitabine (FTC, F) and tenofovir alafenamide (F/TAF) versus emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (F/TDF) as PrEP among transgender women and cisgender men who have sex with men (MSM)...

Tucking is the gender-affirming practice of putting the penis and scrotum between the buttocks and moving the testes up into the inguinal canals. Our study explores tucking and health effects among transfeminine adults ( n =79). Most (74.7%) had practiced tucking and among them, 67.2% had tucked ≥7 years. When tucking, the majority (84.5%) tucked daily and almost half (44.8%) ≥17 h/day. Half (50.0%) reported concern about the health effects of tucking. Itching, rash, and testicular pain were the most commonly reported health effects...

Parental support is associated with improved mental health outcomes for gender diverse youth (GDY). Parents often seek guidance from pediatric providers, but few studies explore what actions make GDY feel supported. Using a qualitative analysis of open-ended survey responses, we aimed to identify ways in which GDY want to be supported by their parents or caregivers. Nine key themes were identified, including using affirming language at home and other settings as desired by GDY, seeking education, and aiding in accessing affirming items and care...

PURPOSE: Gender-affirming hormones (hormones)-the use of sex hormones to induce desired secondary sex characteristics in transgender and nonbinary (TGNB) individuals-are vital health care for many TGNB people. Some hormone providers require a letter from a mental health provider before hormone initiation. We explore the perspectives of TGNB individuals regarding the impact of the letter requirement on their experience of care. METHODS: We conducted semistructured interviews with 21 TGNB individuals who have sought or are receiving hormones...

PURPOSE: The sociopolitical context in which transgender and gender-diverse (TGD) people live has significant effects on mental health. We examined whether perceptions of context (TGD people's perceptions of how TGD people were viewed) differed across four United States (U.S.) states and associations with mental health and identity pride, the mediational effects of minority stressors, and potential buffering effects of resilience. METHODS: TGD individuals in Oregon, Michigan, Nebraska, and Tennessee ( n =158; ages 19-70, mean=33...
