Sexual attraction after gender transition

5 December 2008

Abstract

Past literature provides little insight into the impact of gender transition on sexual attraction. This study examined whether individuals were attracted to the same gender(s) before and after gender transition. Nine participants completed informed consent, a demographics questionnaire, and a modified version of the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid (KSOG). Three participants (33.3%) endorsed change from a primary sexual attraction to one gender to a more open attraction. Two participants (22.2%) endorsed change from a primary attraction to one gender to . a primary attraction to another gender. Four participants (44.4%) noted no change in their sexual attraction. The findings from this study have important implications for individuals who are considering gender transition as well as the practitioners who work with them.
