Since the initial steps for the Transrespect versus Transphobia Worldwide (TvT) research project were taken in the spring of 2009, more than 200 people from over 100 countries have helped in shaping and developing this project. They provided Transgender Europe’s (TGEU) TvT research team with research data and contacts; agreed to do interviews, counselling, reviews of our questionnaires, translations and proof reading; collaborated in organising events and the layout and design of advocacy materials, publications and the website; offered general support and research grants; cooperated in regional research; organising and implementing the research in local contexts, generating data and tools of analysis, analysing the data; and gave various other forms of direct and indirect support. Without these people, the TvT research project would not have been possible.
We would therefore like to express our sincere gratitude and acknowledge these people in alphabetical order. Those who for safety reasons or because we were not able to gain consent cannot be mentioned by name are listed with aliases or as ‘Anonymous’. We have tried our best to name all those who have helped us. Should we erroneously have forgotten to mention anyone, we very much regret our oversight and apologise sincerely.
