“This shouldn’t be the case in 2017”: A call for more research on transgender health | Scope Blog

●TRANS HEALTHCARE
“Trans patients have been filling in the gaps of health care for a while now, but at what cost?” Blotner continued. “We’ve had to accept care from people that aren’t necessarily trained to treat us. In 2017 that really shouldn’t be the case.”

There's a pressing need for more research into transgender health issues. That was the argument eloquently laid out at Stanford Medicine X talk this weekend by

Honestly, there is no damned transgender agenda

●USA
“Religious conservatives continue to re-purpose idiotic anti-gay rhetoric to now attack transgender people. Not only is there no such thing as a “transgender agenda” but — at least as of the last time I checked — gender dysphoria was not considered to be contagious. Try to convince the morons at hate group American Family Association of those simple facts. Go ahead. Just have some Xanax at hand. Better yet try to convince Monica Cole of AFA's One Million Moms. Pfizer does not manufacture enough of the stuff to thwart that imbecile who sees sinister LGBT conspiracies everywhere.”🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

LANDMARK FINDINGS: Human Rights Study on Gender Recognition for Trans People in Asia

●ASIA
“The vast majority of transgender people across the region are unable to obtain any official identification documents that reflect their gender identity. This lack of gender recognition fosters widespread social exclusion, stigma, discrimination and violence when individuals are perceived to deviate from gender norms because their gender identity and/or expression does not coincide with their sex assigned at birth.”

Opinions clash over transgender bathroom policy at school board meeting

●USA
"Want to know what's happening to my son now?" asks Terri Neely, the mother of a young transgender boy in Grass Lake. "He's rarely going to the bathroom. He's now not able to make it through a full day of school every day because the depression is setting in because in his mind he is no longer good enough, he is no longer legitimate. The school must not think he is because his mom is forcing him to use the private bathroom to accommodate all the people who must hate him," she says.

●WE ARE CELEBRATING THIS AMAZING NEWS IN THE PHILIPPINES BECAUSE:
Trans and LGBIQ+ people had no protective laws, they are denied entrances into public venues and heavily discriminated against. Some public venues proudly have rules against allowing LGBTIQ+ people from coming in.
We witnessed our trans sisters refused entrances into venues due to 'No crossdressers' rules in the venue's policies, just because these trans women had identity cards which labels them 'Male', since their female identities are not recognised by law.
.
TRANS PEOPLE STILL DESPERATELY NEEDS THEIR GENDER IDENTITY RECOGNISED ....
Trans people are called 'Gay' or A derogatory word 'Bakla' socially.
.
GENDER RECOGNITION BILL WILL HELP TO ENFORCE THAT POSITIVE CHANGE TRANS PEOPLE NEED.
.
A massive thank you to Geraldine Roman and her team of activists for fighting for our LGBTIQ+ Filipino community. 😍👏🤗✊🙌 #YEStoEquality!
