      San Francisco Plans to Provide Transgender Surgeries

      by Lisa Leff

      Associated Press

      Friday Nov 9, 2012

      SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco is preparing to become the first U.S. city to provide and cover the cost of sex reassignment surgeries for uninsured transgender residents.

      The city’s Health Commission voted Tuesday to create a comprehensive program for treating transgender people experiencing mental distress because of the mismatch between their bodies and their gender identities. San Francisco already provides transgender residents with hormones, counseling and routine health services, but has stopped short of offering surgical interventions, Public Health Director Barbara Garcia said Thursday after the vote was announced.

      According to TLDEF, the child (named "Emma" here to protect her identity; nor was the school identified), was diagnosed with Juvenile Gender Identity Disorder. Her parents had requested the school district to transfer her to a new elementary school that would allow her to wear girls’ clothes and to be called by her own name rather than her male birth name.

      Friday Dec 14, 2012

      SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The women’s basketball team at Mission College expected the bleachers to be full and the hecklers ready when its newest player made her home court debut.

      In the days leading up to the game, people had plenty to say about 6-foot-6-inch, 220-pound Gabrielle Ludwig, who joined the Lady Saints as a mid-season walk-on and became, according to advocates, the first transsexual to play college hoops as both a man and a woman.

      U.S. Psychiatrists: Transgender No Longer a Mental ’Disorder’

      Monday Dec 31, 2012

      Before the term was removed, the manual, known as DSM-5, classified a man who believe he was supposed to be a woman as someone who was mentally ill. Now, the updated DSM refers to "gender dysphoria," which is for individuals who feel distressed by their gender identity.

        Tuesday Jan 15, 2013

         

        Regulators in Oregon and California have quietly directed some health insurance companies to stop denying coverage for transgender patients because of their gender identity.

         

        The states aren’t requiring coverage of specific medical treatments. But they told some private insurance companies they must pay for a transgender person’s hormone therapy, breast reduction, cancer screening or any other procedure deemed medically necessary if they cover it for patients who aren’t transgender.

                The Religious Right's New Target: Transgender People

                Post by Candace Chellew-Hodge

                 

                One of the most frustrating, and often infuriating things about religious conservatives is their stubborn penchant for dividing the world into either/or categories. People are either straight or gay, white or black, male or female, religious or atheist. And of course if you're on the right side of the dichotomy, you're on the right side of God. Anyone else is at best inferior and at worst, a sinner damned to hell.

                  The Perfect "Trans-storm"

                  Many people are familiar with the term, "the perfect storm" that describes an event where a rare combination of circumstances will impact a situation drastically. I truly believe we are now in "a perfect storm" for the fight for equality including workplace and health benefits for transgender people. Many positive recent happenings have now all aligned so that there is a tremendous focus on understanding and appreciating this misunderstood and often maligned segment of our population.

                  Comments on Lily Allen’s post about Trans Awareness Week show exactly why we need it

                  To mark Transgender Awareness Week, Lily Allen posted a meme to her Facebook page.

                  The post reads “gender is up here”, pointing to a brain, “not down there”, pointing to some underpants.

                  However the post attracted a number a transphobic comments.

                  From the high-profile but ultimately disappointing transition of Caitlyn Jenner to the excellent media representations of the transgender community by Laverne Cox, Janet Mock and their peers, to the everyday struggle of transgender folks in our own communities, it's been a very visible year for the transgender struggle.
