Abstract: Therapists in Canada are expected to connect to transgender communities in culturally-informed and emancipatory ways. However there is a lack of unbiased information, training, education, or institutional support to meet this expectation. The Trans Community Says (TCS) Project was created to delve into trans-centred knowledge about the strengths, challenges, and characteristics of trans communities in Alberta. Findings from this project can shed light on how these communities support their members and how they may be better supported. The study demonstrates an anti-oppressive, trans feminist approach to collaborative research with trans communities.
