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 ...

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.

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."

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Voices on the Square. Meanwhile in Europe Submitted by Robyn on Fri, 06/13/2014 - 14:46 Alessandra Bernaroli has been battling with the Italian government for the past five years to keep her legal marriage in tact. It was only after the marriage that Alessandra exposed her transgender feelings to her spouse. --Alessandra Bernaroli. Bernaroli was ruled against in a local court before appealing to Italy's national appeals court. The Constitutional Court said it was aiming to balance "the State's interest in not changing the model of heterosexual marriage...and the interest of the couple where one of the two components changes sex". Meanwhile in Denmark a new law is making it easier for transgender to change their legal gender. All states should ensure that transgender people can obtain legal recognition of their gender through a quick, accessible and transparent procedure in accordance with their own sense of their gender identity. Legal gender recognition is vital to preserve the right to privacy for ...

August 27, 2014. 5:48 pm. The fact that some people change their sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual some as a result of professional therapy is a problem for the homosexual movement. It seriously undermines the myth that homosexuality is a characteristic like race, which people are born with and can never change. Homosexual activists have attacked the ex-gay movement, using legislation to outlaw "sexual orientation change efforts" or "SOCE" with minors by licensed mental health providers. Such bills have passed in California and New Jersey, but have died or remain pending in several other jurisdictions—including the District of Columbia. Most "sexual reorientation therapy" today consists of "talk therapy"—a client simply talking with a counselor about his or her feelings, experiences, ...

The most common option for voice modification, known as voice training, can be difficult.

Oh, boy. Let's stipulate, for the sake of argument, that something called "gender dysphoria" -- with which Tyler was diagnosed at age 4 -- does exist.

Gender empowerment and female-to-male smoking prevalence ratios. 5 While women’s smoking prevalence rates are currently lower than men’s, they are projected to rise in many low- and- middle-income countries. 6 Additionally, Lopez et al.’s 1994 descriptive model of the tobacco epidemic predicts that the female-to-male ratio in smoking prevalence will rise in many low- and- middle-income countries where females currently smoke at much lower rates than males. To examine if women’s empowerment is related to current differences in male and female smoking prevalence rates within countries worldwide, we looked for a potential association between the ratio of female-to-male current cigarette smoking prevalence rates and the gender empowerment measure GEM developed by the United Nations Development Programme UNDP, as manifested across 74 countries at different stages of the tobacco epidemic.

*  Skoptic syndrome
... 'Skoptic syndrome' is a condition in which a person is preoccupied with or engages in genital self-mutilation, such as castration, penectomy or clitoridectomy. The definition of skoptic syndrome is a gender dysphoria found under the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders DSM IV section 302.6: 'Gender Identity Disorder Not Otherwise Specified'. Skoptic syndrome can sometimes be motivated by intense sexual guilt, in which the genitals become identified as the source of the guilt-inducing sexual desire. There is also evidence that voluntary castration is used in modern societies for reasons such as control of libido, body modification and, in some cases of extreme sexual masochism, for purposes of sexual excitement see paraphilia and apotemnophilia. It is also important to notice that the term, along with gender identity disorder GID, can and is also used to imply "minority mainstream view/practices" without negatively implying dysfunction or "wrongness", nor is it applicable to all people ...

With the proliferation of the internet, a wide variety of websites—both pornographic and non-pornographic—geared toward sissies and the general transgender community have flourished. In addition to online merchants and advice websites, there are also sites that are chiefly pornographic in nature and cater to feminization fantasies or feature sissies engaged in sexual acts. These sites often feature photographs or videos of male participants either being dressed, or "forced" to dress in female clothing and instructed on feminine and often submissive behavior.

(1/188) Transgender HIV prevention: implementation and evaluation of a workshop.

Virtually no HIV prevention education has specifically targeted the transgender community. To fill this void, a transgender HIV prevention workshop was developed, implemented and evaluated. A 4 h workshop, grounded in the Health Belief Model and the Eroticizing Safer Sex approach, combined lectures, videos, a panel, discussion, roleplay and exercises. Evaluation using a pre-, post- and follow-up test design showed an increase in knowledge and an initial increase in positive attitudes that diminished over time. Due to the small sample size (N = 59) and limited frequency of risk behavior, a significant decrease in unsafe sexual or needle practices could not be demonstrated. However, findings suggested an increase in safer sexual behaviors such as (mutual) masturbation. Peer support improved significantly. Future prevention education should make special efforts to target the more difficult-to-reach, high-risk subgroups of the transgender population.  (+info)

(2/188) Sex steroids, insulin, and arterial stiffness in women and Men.

Arterial stiffness may be influenced by sex steroids and insulin; the association with fasting insulin level may be stronger in women than in men. Therefore, we analyzed the effects of sex steroid administration on (1) arterial stiffness and (2) the relationship between fasting insulin level and arterial stiffness. Twelve male-to-female transsexuals were treated with ethinyl estradiol and cyproterone acetate, and 18 female-to-male transsexuals were treated with testosterone esters, with assessments made at baseline and after 4 and 12 months. Changes in distensibility and compliance coefficients (DC and CC, respectively) of the common carotid artery, femoral artery (FA), and brachial artery (BA) were analyzed in relation to changes in fasting plasma levels of glucose, insulin, HDL-cholesterol, and triglycerides. After 4 months of estrogens and antiandrogens in men, significant reductions in the CC and DC of the FA (P=0.006 and P=0.04, respectively) and BA (P=0.04 and P=0.04, respectively) were observed. In women, testosterone, on average, did not affect DC or CC, but the changes in fasting insulin level were strongly negatively associated with changes in the CC and DC, especially in the FA and BA. These associations were significantly less strong in genetic men and were independent of age, mean arterial pressure, and glucose and lipid levels. This experimental study shows (1) that short-term administration of estrogens and antiandrogens increases FA and BA stiffness in men and (2) that the fasting insulin level is a stronger determinant of arterial stiffness in women than in men.  (+info)

(3/188) Estrogen improves acetylcholine-induced but not metabolic vasodilation in biological males.

We have previously shown that chronic estrogen therapy improves endothelium-dependent vasodilation in the resistance vessels of biological males. Whether this is nitric oxide (NO) mediated and whether estrogen improves metabolic vasodilation is unknown. Resting forearm blood flow (FBF), ACh-induced vasodilation, and functional hyperemic blood flow (exercise) were assessed before and after the inhibition of NO with N(G)-monomethyl-L-arginine (L-NMMA) in 15 male-to-female transsexuals prescribed estrogen and in 14 age-matched males. Resting FBF was similar in the two groups and was similarly (P = 0.44) but significantly reduced by 48% after infusion of L-NMMA (P < 0.0001). The ACh dose-response relationship was shifted upward and to the left in the transsexual compared with the male group (P < 0.01). After the inhibition of NO, however, the difference in the ACh dose-response curve between the two groups was abolished (P = 0.15). Peak functional hyperemic blood flow was similar for the two groups (P = 0.94). L-NMMA produced a significant (P < 0.01) but similar (P = 0.64) reduction in peak hyperemia in the two groups. The volume of blood repaid to the forearm 1 and 5 min after exercise was also reduced by L-NMMA (P < 0.0001); however, there were no differences between the two groups. This suggests that ACh-mediated NO-dependent vasodilation may be more sensitive to the effects of chronic estrogen than exercise-induced vasodilation. Long-term estrogen does not appear to improve exercise-induced metabolic vasodilation in biological males, despite the fact that NO contributes to this process.  (+info)

(4/188) Oral, but not transdermal, administration of estrogens lowers tissue-type plasminogen activator levels in humans without affecting endothelial synthesis.

Oral estrogen administration decreases plasma levels of tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA), which may be explained by a decrease in endothelial tPA synthesis, an increase in its hepatic clearance, or both. In the present study, we determined (1) differences between oral (ie, via the liver) ethinyl estradiol and transdermal (ie, systemic) 17beta-estradiol administration on plasma antigen levels of tPA and plasminogen activator inhibitor type-1 before and after 4 months of hormone administration and (2) effects on endothelial tPA synthesis, by measuring the local increase in plasma tPA during venous occlusion of the upper extremity. Thirty transsexual males (median age 32 years, range 20 to 44 years ) were randomly assigned to either oral ethinyl estradiol (n=15) or transdermal 17beta-estradiol (n=15); both treatments included the antiandrogen cyproterone acetate (CA). Ten males were treated with CA alone. Seventeen transsexual females (median age 27 years, range 18 to 37 years) were treated with intramuscular testosterone esters. Only oral ethinyl estradiol plus CA but neither transdermal 17beta-estradiol plus CA, nor oral CA, nor parenteral testosterone lowered plasma tPA and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (P<0.001 for both). tPA release during venous occlusion was not affected by oral ethinyl estradiol plus CA in males (P=0.52) or by parenteral testosterone in females (P=0.89). These data are consistent with a previous observation, in rodents, that the decrease in tPA after oral estrogen administration can be explained by an increase in hepatic tPA clearance, leaving endothelial tPA synthesis unchanged, and suggest that these mechanisms also explain the decrease in tPA in humans.  (+info)

(5/188) The prevalence of gender dysphoria in Scotland: a primary care study.

A questionnaire was sent to senior partners in all general practices in Scotland designed to elicit experience of patients with gender dysphoria: a subjective experience of incongruity between genital anatomy and gender identity. Responses were received from 73% of practices. The prevalence of gender dysphoria among patients aged over 15 years was calculated as 8.18 per 100,000, with an approximate sex ratio of 4:1 in favour of male-to-female patients. One-third of gender-dysphoric patients known to practices had registered in the preceding 12 months, suggesting that patients with this condition are increasingly likely to present for medical care.  (+info)

(6/188) Serum and urinary prostate-specific antigen and urinary human glandular kallikrein concentrations are significantly increased after testosterone administration in female-to-male transsexuals.

BACKGROUND: The genes that encode prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and human glandular kallikrein (hK2) are up-regulated by androgens and progestins in cultured cells, but no published studies have described the effect of androgen administration in women on serum and urinary PSA or hK2. METHODS: We measured serum and urinary PSA and hK2 before, and 4 and 12 months post testosterone treatment by immunofluorometric methods in 32 female-to-male transsexuals. RESULTS: Mean serum PSA increased from 1.1 ng/L to 11.1 ng/L and then to 22 ng/L by 4 and 12 months post treatment, respectively; the corresponding mean values in urine were 17, 1420, and 18 130 ng/L, respectively. Serum hK2, another kallikrein closely related to PSA, remained undetectable at the three time points. However, urinary hK2 concentration rose from below the detection limit (<6 ng/L) before treatment to 18 and 179 ng/L by the 4th and the 12th month of treatment, respectively. All changes were statistically significant (P <0.001) at 4 months. CONCLUSIONS: Testosterone administration increases serum and urinary PSA and urinary hK2 in women. These measurements may be useful as indicators of androgenic stimulation in women.  (+info)

(7/188) HIV-related tuberculosis in a transgender network--Baltimore, Maryland, and New York City area, 1998-2000.

During June-August 1998, the Tuberculosis (TB) Control Program of the Baltimore City Health Department (BCHD) identified four cases of TB among young black men. Three of these men also had human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. The four reported belonging to a social network of transgender persons (i.e., persons who identify with or express a gender and/or sex different from their biologic sex) (1). By October 1998, test results on Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from the four men demonstrated a matching 11-band DNA fingerprint pattern (2), suggesting that these case-patients were epidemiologically linked. This report describes the public health investigation of these TB case-patients to identify contacts in Baltimore and the New York City area (NYC); the findings suggest that an interstate outbreak of TB has occurred within a social network that includes transgender persons.  (+info)

(8/188) The female-to-male transsexual patient: a source of human ovarian cortical tissue for experimental use.

We demonstrated that ovaries removed from female-to-male transsexuals can be used as research material for ovarian cryopreservation, grafting and culture studies. A 21 year old female-to-male transsexual individual, who had been treated with androgens for 12 months, donated her ovaries removed in the sex reversal operation. She had normal numbers of, and proportions of, primordial (98.6%) and primary (1.4%) follicles in her ovarian cortex. After freezing and thawing the ovarian tissue was grafted to immuno-incompetent mice, which were stimulated by human recombinant FSH for 14 days, 10 weeks after transfer. Initiation of growth had occurred in the grafts in which only 79.4% of follicles were primordial, 17.1% primary, and in which there were also secondary and pre-antral follicles. Because long-term androgen treatment does not appear to cause depletion of the primordial follicle pool or affect the developmental capacity of the follicles, ovaries from individuals who undergo sex-reversal operations are an excellent source of tissue for research and maybe even for oocyte donation in the future.  (+info)
