Trans Healthcare Maryland aims to unify the transgender community of Maryland for the purpose of extending competent, accessible, and affirming healthcare to everyone in the state.
We’re currently working to get Planned Parenthood to offer affirming, dignifying care to trans people in all of its many Maryland locations.
* gender identity and pronoun training
* teaching staff about trans bodies
* best practices for respecting trans patients’ needs
* hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
While Planned Parenthood is currently our main focus due to their size, coverage, and experience with reproductive and sexual health, we will also pursue these same goals with other individual and systemic healthcare providers.
Finally, we’ve built a safer online community by and for trans Marylanders to share their tips, experiences, and questions about their healthcare.
If you’re comfortable sharing any experiences you’ve had in your medical care — good, bad, or otherwise meaningful to you — it would mean the world if you share them! Through networking our information, we will empower each other to make healthy choices and avoid roadblocks.
