Some ideas for questions to ask:

  • Is your organisation open to transgender and intersex people?
  • What happens when you have an intersex person come to your organisation for support?
  • Do you use the 2019 National Guidelines for Gender Affirming Healthcare at your clinic?
  • Does your organisation have a policy/formal stance on handling transgender patients/clients/students etc?
  • Have your staff had takataapui sensitivity training, or would your organisation be interested in this?
  • Do you employ transgender people, and are there any transgender staff in your management team or on your board?
  • What does your sports team or recreational group do to make trans people know it’s a welcome space for them?
