Hello from JustAnswer.
Yes, it is possible to transmit the trichomonas if there was non-penetrative contact. The transmission requires direct contact, and it is far more common for it to occur with penetrative penile-vaginal sex, but it could be transmitted with non-penetrative contact.
Note that the men usually are not infected with the trichomonas. The male can harbor the germ and transmit the trichomonas to other women, but the male is usually not infected. It is also usually difficult to document the presence of the trichomonas in the male, since it does not actively cause infection. But, as best as can be determined, it is direct contact that allows for transmission of the trichomonas.
If I can provide any further information, please let me know.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
