a comprehensive sexual health guide for transgender and gender expansive people and their partners. 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.
A lot of the safer sex info in the booklet applies to folks of many different bodies and genders (same as what’s on this site), but we’re really psyched about the section Hormones and Surgery: Sex During Transition. It’s got lots of info that we don’t see too often in other places.
You can download Safer Sex for Trans Bodies from HRC Foundation’s website [Link].
Planned Parenthood Toronto’s “Youth and Healthcare Rights” resource lays out young people’s rights for when they go to a clinic. Check ’em out!
