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.
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.
March 10th 2018, takataapui, transgender, and intersex people and supporters walked, danced, and rode along in the Wellington International Pride Parade with a clear message: transgender health care now!
