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.
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?
Please take time this weekend to fill in the Counting Ourselves survey that we helped to develop, so we have large scale national data on takataapui, trans, and intersex people's health.
