Advocacy

Detrans Canada

Link:  https://detranscanada.com/

Description: From their website: “Detrans Canada is an independent and non-partisan advocacy organization that supports detransitioning, desisting, and re-identifying Canadians.

We seek to fill the gap in research, resources, and platforms available to those detransitioning, desisting, and re-identifying.

We believe those who are in the process of questioning, ending or reversing a gender identify or gender transition process should be offered support, access to high-quality research, access to informed medical professionals, and the ability to advocate for themselves.”


Gender Care Consumer Advocacy Network (GCCAN)

Link: https://www.gccan.org/

Description: From their website: “The Gender Care Consumer Advocacy Network (GCCAN), founded in late 2019, seeks to empower recipients of gender transition-related care to become healthy and whole. It aims to do this by developing a database of resources for consumers to better inform their decisions, establishing a network of support groups where members can explore their options and experiences, and forming a meetup in the spring of 2020 to connect directly with consumers in the community. GCCAN is comprised of consumers of gender care services from a variety of backgrounds, including both transgender and detransitioned people, so as to advocate for better health care outcomes for all.”

GCCAN is compiling a database of medical information, legal resources, detransition, peer-developed resources relevant to gender care consumers. You can find their list of resources here: https://www.gccan.org/resources.


LGB Alliance USA

Description: From their website: “LGB Alliance USA is dedicated to protecting and advancing the rights of lesbians, gay men, and bisexuals. We are part of an international movement confronting a new wave of homophobia that—just like the old one—tries to tell us our same-sex attraction is wrong. We advocate for LGB people to live free from discrimination or disadvantage on the basis of their sexual orientation, while amplifying the voices of lesbians by highlighting the dual discrimination they experience as women in a male-dominated society. We aim to protect gender-nonconforming children from unscientific ideologies and bodily harm, and to promote freedom of speech through informed dialogue.”


Rethink Identify Medicine Ethics (ReIME)

Description: From their website: “ReIME is a non-profit education and research organization dedicated to improving ethical long term care and treatment for gender non-conforming children and youth.”


Stats For Gender

Link: http://www.statsforgender.org/

Description: From their website: “The absence of a single, easy-to-use portal for statistics and facts about gender has hindered parents and professionals alike. That’s why Genspect created Stats For Gender.

We believe that the public has a right to reliable data, intuitively categorized, and phrased in simple, jargon-free terms. We want those who are questioning their gender to have full access to the facts. And we want their families, friends and loved ones to be able to see the bigger picture.”
