Transgender & Non-Binary Surgery
Allied Research Collective


We don't know enough about the experience or outcomes of genital gender-affirming surgery (GGAS, bottom or lower surgery) from the perspective of the trans & non-binary (TGNB) community.

Researchers should investigate questions that are important to the trans community.

TRANS-ARC is gathering a community of people who are passionate about centering trans perspectives in research on GGAS.

Engage with our mission

TRANS-ARC is led by a a national group of advocates, trans community members, researchers, and clinicians who specialize in trans surgical care and patient-centered research.
