This organization seems really cool, they provide financial support for trans* people who couldn’t afford surgery under normal circumstances. I saw this online and I thought people might benefit from it.
The following is a list of top surgeons around the world. The list is divided by country and in alphabetical order. If there are any missed surgeons please let us know. Where possible we’ve linked to the surgeons website or a website containing information.

I have a really exciting Spoonie Living announcement for y’all! When I started on my 6-month medical leave from work, one of my goals was to create a zine for new spoonies, to help them hit the ground running as they begin their chronic illness experience. I’m calling it Chronically Badass, and it’s finally done!
Here’s what I cover inside:
- Spoon theory
- Getting answers
- Working with doctors
- Work & school
- Friends & family
- Mental health
- Coping strategies
- Online communities
It’s free for download right here (although you’re welcome to donate if you like), so be sure to check it out!
Please also reblog and spread the word so others can find and benefit from this zine.
OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: TRANS WOMEN ACROSS GENRES

buzzfeedlgbt reports on this amazing app:
Speech Pathologist Kathe Perez has been working with trans clients for years. She recalls one patient’s insightful remark: “It’s that when I talk, it really isn’t a reflection of my soul – it isn’t a reflection of who I am.”
Perez has now developed Eva, the first phone app designed to help transgender users change the pitch and tone of their voice to reflect their identity.
Eva (Exceptional Voice App) is an entire suite of voice training mobile app products for both trans men and women. The app guides users through various lessons and breathing exercises.
The app’s website states it will take at least 6 to 12 months to effectively alter one’s voice. This video clip features an example “before and after” segment, having a user sample her “original” and “altered” voice:
As one user of the app put it: “Voice can be a real liability. There are definitely large parts of this country, even this state, where it’s dangerous to be trans. It can be a matter of life or death.”
At just $4.99, this app is a far more affordable option for users than visiting a vocal coach or speech pathologist. What a great resource!
Crystals can form at the bottom of your vial of testosterone if it becomes too cold. Here are some tips for storing your T vials.
- Store at 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F) ex; bedroom, bathroom
- Store out of direct sunlight. I store all my HRT paraphernalia in a cigar box.
- If crystals occur, warming and shaking the vial should redissolve any crystals.
The recent CBS story regarding nine Swedish women who received uterus transplants undoubtedly caught the attention of transgender women throughout the world. Anyone, with even the slightest awareness of the advancement of medical science, understands that eventually there will be few things left in the realm of impossible. The idea that a transgender woman will one day be able to carry a child in her womb is no longer just an idea. It is a reality of the future.
If this becomes a thing I think I’d like to donate my uterus to a trans woman.
i’m crying oh gosh
TUMBLR PROF ANNOUNCEMENT: If you are trans or nonbinary and you are in the same situation as the student above, email your professors before class starts. I understand that it might be uncomfortable, but generally professors are absolutely happy to accommodate you. I know I always will be!
If your professor does not respond positively, contact the Dean or the campus LGBT+ resource center with a copy of the email and show them that you are concerned about gender discrimination in the classroom.
Also this is a link to the template I used to write this email, and I’ve seen another similar template going around, and this was extremely helpful.
just a reminder that this is an option for you folks! i did it and all my teachers replied within a few hours saying that it was okay. you can do this! school does not have to be painful.
Q:Hey, I'm moving to Jacksonville soon and I was wondering what kind of resources there are in that area for trans teens? I've never lived in Florida so I'm pretty clueless as to how things go down there. Any help would be greatly appreciated
