Transgender Health Care Print

Transgender persons, like everyone else, have health care needs, but theirs are most often poorly understood by providers who have little to no experience with this population. Alejandro Marcel, diversity educator and trans health consultant, joins with hosts Nancy Nangeroni and Gordene MacKenzie, PhD., in outlining the concerns and needs faced by transgender persons in their access to health care. Discussion ranges from barriers to receiving treatment, to specific differences between male-to-female and female-to-male needs, to the most recent results of medical studies. Other program segments include a response to a transgender-disparaging Fox News segment, as well as a "Raving Raven" segment on gender diversity among animals.

    Nancy, thought you might be interested to know that Lady Di (Vernon from Vernon's Specialites in Waltham, MA) is now doing a talk program on WOMR/WFMR www.womr.org relating to the GLBT issues. Would be interested in having you on my program some time when you are available. Lots of hugs and warm regards from Ptown.

    Can you recommend a doctor in Portland for a transgender(female to male)?
  • Nancy Nangeroni
    I'm sorry, we can't make referrals. There's a vibrant trans community in Portland where you should be able to find help.
