THE ALTERNATIVE SEXUALITIES HEALTH RESEARCH ALLIANCE
Because everyone deserves quality healthcare
Welcome to TASHRA
TASHRA is a community-based 501(c)(3) non-profit with the important mission of improving the health and healthcare services of individuals who are involved
in alternative sexualities.
As champions of Kink competent healthcare,
TASHRA supports empirical research on this misunderstood and often pathologized sexual-minority.
Our vision is a world where fear of prejudice and discrimination does not prevent people involved in a broad variety of sexual interests and activities from receiving caring, compassionate and competent care
from physical and mental health professionals.

Join the May CARAS Webinar
The next CARAS webinar is May 16, 2020, Saturday, at 12 noon Pacific / 3 pm Eastern.
The one-hour webinar will feature Dr. Christopher King and Dr. Robert Bienvenu presenting Alternative Sexualities Research and the Institutional Review Board (IRB).
IRB review of alternative sexualities research proposals has been a challenge for many investigators. Focusing on United States requirements, this webinar provides an overview of the historical development of the today's IRB system, current regulatory requirements that are relevant to alternative sexualities research, and recommendations to facilitate IRB review of alt-sex research proposals. We also describe the CARAS Community Advisory Board process and the CARAS IRB, both of which specialize in the review of alternative sexualities research.
