I'm Zinnia Jones, a trans woman activist and writer on YouTube. I've been transitioning for the past five years, which has required me to learn a lot about a variety of transgender-related subjects. In that time, I've found that most mainstream coverage of trans topics is largely inadequate – presenting only shallow oversimplifications, produced by cis (non-trans) people, for cis people. I think we can do better, and that’s the aim of Gender Analysis.

Gender Analysis is a web series launched in 2014 exploring transgender science and life experiences in depth, and revealing the many insights to be found at their intersection. We take a closer look at fields such as sociology, public health, psychiatry, cognitive science, and more, weaving these diverse perspectives into a deeper understanding of gender-related phenomena. Gender Analysis goes beyond the 101s to educate both trans and cis viewers on some of the most fascinating dimensions of our lives – and the pressing issues we face in society. Your contribution will support the development of episodes covering topics such as the process of gender questioning, self-acceptance, history, social visibility as a trans person, the prevalence of transness, relationships, parenting, access to healthcare, legal aspects, common misconceptions, and much more.

In the course of covering this, I’ve had countless people tell me that I helped them understand and accept transness, or even come to terms with their own gender. I feel that’s an incredibly important thing to work towards, and your support will help me continue spreading this message.

Webcam microphones don't really have the best quality. I'll find a higher-quality microphone for use when filming.
