Health is health!: Mental health for glbt people is the same as health for anyone --- the capacity to love, work and develop.

But, those that survive are true heroes. ...Read more

When transgendered people start dating people of the opposite sex, does that make the person of the opposite sex gay if they didn't know of the change?
I hope I am: Understanding this correctly. In a situation in which the person is unaware of other individual's actual gender - the person is not making a conscious choice to date someone of that actual gender. In other words, if a man fully believed he was dating /sexually attracted to a woman (who actually a male) - that would not make the man a homosexual. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How can we get more healthcare providers to list transgender as a sex option on health forms to make data analysis research on our community easier.
Public policy change: Although gender non-conforming, trans* & people w/ intersex status have always existed, our society has stigmatized them by insisting on binary gender labels.
