Abstract

This special issue showcases feminist psychological work on the experiences of transgender-identified people as well as social structures (governmental, social, and academic) that influence trans people’s lives. Empirical papers within this special issue consider judgments of trans legitimacy in the media, government regulation of sex designation, and the familial and friend relationships of trans people. Point of View and Reflection pieces grapple with issues that are crucial for feminist psychologists to consider: choosing research topics, methods, and clinical practices that are identityaffirming and foreground the well-being of participants and trans populations. The introduction closes by suggesting multiple directions for future research.
