Advocacy

Detrans Canada

Type of resource: Organization

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

Type of resource: Organization

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.
