This post is a legacy page, and was part of an on-going series, Trans 101 for Trans People. It covers questions about medical transition, hormones, surgeries, or seeking health care for transgender people.

For the material that once lived on this page, please see this page.

  1. This post was very striking. The last two paragraphs were especially impressive. I wish I could be of help to those who don’t have a safety net.

    • There are many ways to be of help, depending on the resources at your disposal. Simply understanding the issues, educating others when appropriate, standing up for injustice, and in general being a good ally is helpful.

      You can advocate for trans-safe housing in your local homeless shelters, for example. If you have money, you can donate to your local diversity center or trans program(s). I do NOT recommend donating to the HRC for trans issues – they have a rather checkered background. If you have a couch, you can participate in the trans couchsurfing network… and so on. 🙂
