Lambda Legal, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC Foundation), and the LGBT Rights Committee of the New York City Bar Association, with pro bono assistance from Hogan Lovells US, LLP, have jointly released a unique, groundbreaking publication that will provide much-needed guidance to hospitals seeking to improve health care for transgender patients.

“Lambda Legal’s Help Desk gets scores of calls from transgender people who are facing discrimination or being denied care when they need it. Transgender people face significant barriers to equal, consistent, and high-quality health care,” said Dru Levasseur, Director of the Transgender Rights Project at Lambda Legal. “This first-ever guide to transgender-affirming hospital policies will reduce health disparities for transgender people and offer them truly equitable care.”


The Seattle Lesbian online magazine reaches more than 188,000 readers per week globally.
