Trans Healthcare MD aims to promote trans wellness throughout Maryland by increasing access to affirming services and resources, while nurturing young trans leadership.
We’re working with providers around Maryland to offer affirming, dignifying care to trans people.

We were proud to be part of the planning committee for the inaugural Maryland Trans Resilience Conference, held September 21st, 2019. A collaboration between Trans Healthcare MD, the Baltimore Transgender Alliance, CLEAR Baltimore, and trans leaders around the state, the conference created a trans-affirming space for folks to come together for panels, workshops, healing, and more.
During the 2019 Maryland legislative session, we’ve worked with a coalition of trans-led or trans-affiliated organizations towards necessary policy changes in our state. These organizations include the Baltimore Transgender Alliance, the National Center for Transgender Equality, Intersex and Genderqueer Recognition Project, HostHome, Maryland Trans Unity, FreeState Justice and Trans Recognition Maryland.
We’re building bridges with local political and outreach groups, like SWOP Baltimore, DCATS, LGBTQ Democrats of Montgomery County and Montgomery County DSA.
We look forward to participating in more events, including the first Trans Visibility Community Festival, Trans Thriving and panel discussions in a range of venues. We attended Prides across the state in 2019.
We’ve built a safer space 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.
