Although he had been on testosterone for 10 years, the staff, because of their unfamiliarity with transgender health, had never monitored the side effects of his hormone therapy. Hence, a male-to-female person is a biologic male who identifies as a female, and a female-to-male person is a biologic female who identifies as male. These visits can be excellent opportunities for preventive health care, health maintenance, and close monitoring of the side effects associated with hormone use. One study reported that 26 percent of transgender patients had been denied medical care specifically because of their transgender status.

Not for the Huffington Post and the parents of 11-year-old Sadie, who is transgender a boy pretending to be a girl. Obama needed to call out for transgender rights as well. HuffPo s Gay Voices page reported that Sadie corrected the oversight, writing a second speech.

By Mahealani Richardson. Published 3:15 PM EST Feb 27, 2013. HONOLULU - Hawaii designer Andy South is living life as a woman and, for the first time on television, she's speaking out about being transgendered. She made the change two years ago, but says the time has come to be open about it. When we met South in 2010, he was a finalist on the hit television show "Project Runway" opening his Atelier design shop. But, South was unsettled in a big way. He wanted to be a woman. Now, he's well on his way. He is living as a she changing her name to Ariyapong Southipong. In a general setting, I'll use Ari. But, sometimes Andy South is more recognizable," said Southipong. "It's a little easier for people to pick up, oh -- it's that Andy guy. Oh well, not a guy.". "I would see glimpses of someone else and that someone else was a woma...

The problem is not the lack of help available, its the social stigma of being trans often reinforced within the pages of the sun and the daily mail that stops people seeking help for the condition.

Marriage Equality. Commentary. Commentary. Closure Eludes Family of Gay Man Killed in 1973 Arson. “First in the fight against AIDS,” as it long billed itself, the New York agency once known as Gay Men’s Health Crisis is sinking under a huge rent on unused space, a vacuum of leadership, the dimming of its voice in HIV prevention, and criticism from all sides. At the moment all but one of the diners are men, even though GMHC, which stopped using its full name—Gay Men’s Health Crisis—a few years ago so as not to suggest it served only gay men, claims that 25.4% of its clients are women. “We had a guy one Thanksgiving who cried because his own family wouldn’t accept him that day, but he had a home here.” HIV-positive New Yorkers, many of them gay and bi men, have had a home at GMHC since 1982, when playwright and activist Larry Kramer and a handful of other professional white gay men founded the agency amid shocking public indifference to a disease that was suddenly striking down homosexuals left and right.

Bamby Salcedo, Transgender Harm Reduction Project. As we've discussed in previous posts, the transgender community has been disproportionately affected by HIV, and often faces challenges finding and accessing appropriate services. The National HIV/AIDS Strategy addresses these disparities, starting with the vision that states:. The United States will become a place where new HIV infections are rare and when they do occur, every person, regardless of age, gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socio-economic circumstance, will have unfettered access to high quality, life-extending care, free from stigma and discrimination. The Strategy also recognizes that transgender individuals are at high risk for HIV infection and makes recommendations to prevent HIV among transgendered individuals. To lea...

font size. Blair didn’t have health insurance, but because she didn’t earn much money, she qualified for Colorado’s state-run Women’s Wellness Connection program, which funds free mammograms through Planned Parenthood and other health-care providers. “This is just one example of the minefield that health care can be for a transgender person,” said Shane Snowdon, director of the Human Rights Campaign ’s Health Aging Program and before that, founding director of the Center for LGBT Health Equity at the University of California San Francisco. The result is that transgender people are much more likely to be poor — and in poor health. She also noted under the CDC’s interpretation, male-to-female transgender people don’t qualify for free screenings — but female-to-male transgender people do. Meanwhile, Jacqueline Miller, the medical director overseeing the screening program for the CDC, has said the agency was only complying with a 1990 statute, the Breast and Cervical Cancer Mortality Prevention Act.

Research on hormone therapy has indicated that there is a drug classified as a diuretic, Diuretics are known to suck electrolytes out of the body, which can have some nasty consequences if not done under medical supervision 3 which is also a strong anti-androgen meaning it blocks the effects of male hormones.

A growing number of companies are changing their health insurance plans to include benefits for transgender employees. Yet even though professional groups such as the American Medical Association recommend coverage of services for transgender people —who identify with a gender other than the one they were born as—many companies continue to hold back. But the letter from the Office for Civil Rights notes that it's discriminatory for companies to deny coverage or benefits to employees based on "gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity."

Nadine Williams, a transgender woman has been cleared of rape and two counts of sexual assault which she was accused of committing before transitioning while presenting as Dean, a male. Williams who spend 6 months remanded to pretrial confinement with men while waiting for the trial simply said she was relieved the "torment" was finally over. The unfortunate articles I've seen to date have misidentified Nadine as a 'transgender man,' further adding confusion by misgendering with male pronouns. But as a testament to her character Nadine told The South Wales that while waiting trial she "worked to try to make the prison trans-friendly" and decided to make her tribulations public knowledge to help people understand the transgender community. She now wants to move on with her life and continue her journey. "I can now rebuild my family life," said Miss Williams. "I am cleared and I have been vindicated," she said. "There c...

July 24, 2012 July 24, 2012. As stated in the most recent 1994 DSM-V Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders used by mental health professionals, Gender Identity Disorder or Transvestic Fetishism is the diagnosis given to adults, adolescents and children with a “strong and persistent cross-gender identification.” The umbrella term for Transgender encompasses transsexuals, cross-dressers and others whose self-concepts otherwise do not align with the male or female label that they were given at birth. Transgender advocates are trying to persuade the American Psychiatric Association to rewrite or even remove the categories used to diagnose them as they feel the DSM-V Manual is discriminatory and implies that they have a mental illness. Points out Dana Beyer, a retired eye surgeon, who helped the Washington Psychiatric Society make recommendations for the chapter on “Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders, “ the new term switches the emphasis from a disorder that by definition all transgender ...

... JDI IN THE NEWS - 2009. Lovisa Stannow, Transgender prisoners sentenced to rape, ColoradoDaily.com, July 27, 2009 Prison officials need to do more to protect inmates from sexual assault. And there is one group of inmates whose vulnerability has gone all but unnoticed -- and that's people who are transgender. corrections systems house inmates based on their birth gender, disregarding other factors, such as physical appearance that may be entirely feminine including breasts or government identity documents that categorize these individuals as female. Not surprisingly, while in men's detention facilities, most transgender women are sexually assaulted. A recent academic study of the experiences of hundreds of transgender women in California's men's prisons -- a survey that was commissioned by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation -- revealed that 59 percent of male-to-female transgender prisoners had been sexually assaulted while incarcerated. A shocking 0 percent of these inmates consi...

Namaste’s book Invisible Lives that critiqued queer theory-based transphobia, and to an article by Judith Butler entitled Undiagnosing Gender. The editing was not extensive, just some minor edits for clarity since this article began as an email written in one draft, and removal of names and personal references. Her Tragic Misreadings chapter from Invisible Lives is a brilliant analysis of how trans people are often misunderstood in postmodern queer theory. Last semester when I critiqued Judith Butler’s Bodies That Matter and her take on Venus Xtravaganza, it was this book I was reading, which you may well recall. Namaste makes an excellent point by bringing to light the fact that, as she says, “Here is the point: Venus was killed because she was a transsexual prostitute.” This is a matter she raises very bluntly in response to the fact that Butler seems to elide that point entirely, and more specifically Venus Xtravaganza’s trans subjectivity. It can be said that Namaste is missing the point of what Butl...

It was only after the marriage that Alessandra exposed her transgender feelings to her spouse. --Alessandra Bernaroli.

testosterone while in the uterus and that this 2D:4D ratio can be considered a crude measure for prenatal androgen exposure, with lower 2D:4D ratios pointing to higher prenatal androgen exposure.

Soldier convicted in WikiLeaks case gets new name. AP — An Army private convicted of providing classified documents to WikiLeaks won an initial victory Wednesday toward living as a woman when a Kansas judge granted a petition to change her name to Chelsea Elizabeth Manning.

(8/41) HIV prevention service utilization in the Los Angeles House and Ball communities: past experiences and recommendations for the future.

African-American young men who have sex with men and transgender persons are at elevated risk for HIV infection. House and Ball communities, networks of mostly African-American gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals who compete in modeling and dance, represent a prime venue for HIV prevention with these difficult-to-reach populations; however, little research exists on effective approaches to HIV prevention within these communities. Using a mixed-methods approach, the present study sought to document participation in HIV prevention activities of a sample from the Los Angeles House and Ball communities (n = 263) in order to inform future service development. While 80% of participants were tested for HIV within the past 6 months, only 26% report HIV prevention program attendance. House leaders recommend a holistic approach to HIV prevention, one that incorporates attention to social problems beyond HIV, including poverty, housing difficulties, and lack of job training.  (+info)
