The guide is written by and for members of the transgender community and offers them a long-overdue resource on potentially life-saving and affirming practices, from respectful terminology and definitions to helpful practices for sexual health following transition-related care.

You can download Safer Sex for Trans Bodies from HRC Foundation’s website [Link].
