The current study examined demographics, sexual orientation, gender characteristics, and gender minority stress and their association to excessive alcohol, cannabis, and illicit (noncannabis) drug use among 1210 transgender adults living in the United States. The authors conducted a secondary analysis of data that included 680 transgender women (M age  = 32.63, SD age  = 12.29) and 530 transgender men (M age  = 26.14, SD age  = 7.42). A modified version of the Risk Behavioral Assessment quantified participants' alcohol, cannabis, and illicit drug use in the past 3 months...

PURPOSE: In a considerable percentage of individuals with a detectable alpha rhythm in their EEG, bursts of generalized hypersynchronous alpha activity (GHSAA) may occur, during alertness. The aim of this study was to examine whether appearance of GHSAA, which probably generates from transcortical circuitry, shows any correlation with demographic characteristics, underlying normal or abnormal pathophysiology, or substances in use. METHODS: The authors retrospectively reviewed 441 EEG recordings performed in their laboratory during a 1-year period for presence of GHSAA, concomitantly collecting data that concerned symptoms, diagnosis, imaging, medication, and demographics...

INTRODUCTION: In the treatment of transgender women, the surgical construction of a neo-vagina, or vaginoplasty, is the final stage in the transition to the desired gender. Surgeons aim to create a neovagina that is in function and appearance as close to a biological vagina as possible. However, to date, it is insufficiently clear whether transgender women are satisfied with the functional and cosmetic outcomes of vaginoplasty. AIMS: Our aim was to assess if penile skin inversion neovaginoplasty performed in transgender women meet the objectives strived for, by determining functional and aesthetic outcomes, as well as the physical and sexual well-being and satisfaction...

UNLABELLED: Pitch elevation surgery is most often indicated to assist male-to-female transgendered individuals seeking a more feminine voice quality. Behavioral therapy is primary management but if the desired voice quality is not achieved, surgery is offered. Procedures described that raise vocal pitch alter one or more of the main parameters known to physiologically control pitch; vocal fold tension, length, and mass. OBJECTIVE: Web formation with injection augmentation significantly raises vocal pitch in male-to-female transgendered individuals...

Previous research has indicated that opposition toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trangender (LGBT) rights remains prevalent among Western populations. In this article, we investigate the determinants of anti-gay attitudes among adolescents in two liberal democracies, Belgium (n = 6,330) and Canada (n = 3,334). The analysis indicates that hostile feelings toward LGBT rights are particularly widespread among boys, while the effects of socioeconomic status and parental education remain limited. Various religious denominations proved to have a strong and significant negative impact on tolerance, with especially high scores for Islam...

ISSUE ADDRESSED: Health differentials related to the social position of people whose sexual attraction or gender identity differs from that of the majority may be the 'forgotten inequity' in contemporary Australian discourses on health inequalities and social inclusion. What sexually- and gender-diverse communities see as health priorities and the social determinants of their health have been little studied in Australia. This survey explored the experience and opinions of a convenience sample of gay, lesbian, bisexual, trangender and intersex (GLBTI) people in South Australia...
