/ The Informer / gender / Trans people come in every age bracket, it’s not just the young that need our support.

 

Thursday 30th November saw a landmark change in the legal requirements for transgender teens to be allowed access to hormone therapy. Teens who are experiencing gender dysphoria no longer have to argue their case in front of the family court.

The decision to start hormone therapy will instead be in the hands of the transgender teenagers themselves, as well as their families and doctor. While this is a great first step, there’s a lot more work to be done for the transgender community.

Activist Sally Goldner talks to The Informer about the accessibility of gender affirming services for older trans people. While the law change is an incredibly positive step for trans youth, it’s important to remember that trans people come in every age bracket.

This segment aired on The Informer on JOY 94.9 on 4th December 2017.
