What does gender-affirming care for adults actually involve?
If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts, contact the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 988.
Last week, The 21st Show unpacked gender-affirming care for trans youth, we were joined by doctors, experts, and young trans people to - what it is, what it isn’t, and what difference it can make. However, a handful of states, such as Missouri and Florida, have tried to go further in banning gender-affirming care for trans adults. As we tried to shed light on what gender-affirming care for trans youth can look like, today we’re going to spend our program unpacking what it can look like for adults.
