Hazel Transgender Research Collective

Orlando, Florida



The Hazel Transgender Research Collective is an independent research group founded by Zinnia Jones in Orlando, Florida in 2014, publishing the Gender Analysis series, investigating contemporary transgender issues and developing interdisciplinary insights into gender phenomena in society. Our work draws on a number of fields and methods to provide a deeper look into the workings of gender, including psychiatry, sociology, cognitive science, analytic philosophy, feminist theory, literary criticism, and more. Informed by the experiences and perspectives of trans and queer people, we aim to illuminate the connections between our everyday lives and what research can tell us about transgender topics.

Gender Analysis Depersonalization Project

The Gender Analysis Depersonalization Project is our most significant original research program, working to elucidate the features of depersonalization (feelings of unreality) in the context of gender dysphoria and transition. We're currently working with trans people as well as medical professionals and specialists, drawing on emerging research in the fields of psychiatry, neurochemistry, and psychopharmacology to develop a better picture of the nature and treatment of depersonalization in the transgender population.
