THE TRANSGENDER/ GENDER NON BINARY/GENDER NONCONFORMING COMMUNITY

Persistent stigma and fear of discrimination impede many transgender individuals from accessing care – and for good reason. It is not uncommon for transgender/TGNC/TGNB individuals to avoid mainstream organizations due to stigma, discrimination and services that are not sensitive to/or competent to address the unique needs of the transgender community.
