This website includes excerpts of the text found throughout my thesis, and, importantly, links to the videos I have been studying. I encourage readers to view this website in tandem with (or in place of) the paper text, so as to be able to click on quotes and video links to watch the vloggers themselves speak directly to you. This allows you, the reader and viewer, to become a form of participant observer, and demonstrates the power of accessible online mediums.
Each section of the thesis is accesible by clicking the images below (and also by clicking the sub-headings under the "Thesis" button on the omnipresent menu). I encourage viewers/readers to view the sections in order, left to right and top to bottom. Hyperlinked text (underlined and in a different color) is click-able and will open a new window/tab of your browser showing further information or the video being studied. I encourage viewers to watch (some of) the videos linked so as to get a more comprehensive view of vlogging/vloggers.
The “Glossary” section on the upper menu bar is home to the glossary of lesser-known terms that are used throughout this thesis. If first approaching this subject matter (YouTube and transgender identities/bodies), it may be helpful to explore the glossary to become familiar with the vernacular.
Under the glossary tab, you may also access a selection of linked videos that act as a DIY-crash-course in related topics.
The “About” section on the upper menu bar has information about this thesis project, about me (the author), as well as works cited and contact information.
