Notes from The Transgender Healthcare Conference

A couple of weeks ago, I attended an all-day training for healthcare professionals on Transgender issues and care. This was an awesome service provided by Boulder County Public Health and sponsored by the Boulder County Trans Task Force. What a gift to bring to the community! It was wonderful to sit in a packed room full of therapists, doctors, nurses, and other clinicians who are dedicated to becoming more educated and competent on trans issues. I am still exploring all of the additional resources and materials offered at the conference, and thought I would share a couple with you.

This is a wonderful advocacy video made by Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD). Please pass it on!

This is an article written by one of the conference speakers. Nicole speaks to simultaneous processes of discovering her gender identity and discovering her faith in the Lutheran Church:

Guided onto the Path of Peace, Love, and Joy

Also, be sure to check out this “action kit” for schools:
