Many trans people are passionate about equality, which can lead them to join community groups, unions, or protests. This pamphlet gives legal information for trans people interacting with Police and the criminal justice system when protesting.
15% of trans people run away from home or are kicked out because of their gender. Those rejected by whaanau are twice as likely to have experienced homelessness (40%) as those who were not rejected (22%).
We're very pleased to announce that the national guidelines for trans healthcare in Aotearoa have been released, and can be found here.
Facial hair removal is one of the most urgent, safety enhancing, mental health improving, and empowering medical treatments for many trans women and non-binary people.
YES surgeries are happening. The High Cost Treatment Pool is operating, and trans women are being sent to Manakau based surgeon Dr Rita Yang, after 6 months of hair removal treatment in the genital area, as per Rita's preferred method.
Are you queer, trans, non-binary, takataapui, intersex, LGBTQIA+, MVPFAFF, or questioning? Have you accessed any mental health support in Aotearoa? (For example, counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists, or therapists) Are you aged 14 or older?
