Most of us think of gender as something that is rigid and fixed. But in the transgender world the boundaries are more fluidic. In this episode we explore not just the particular health concerns, issues with access to the healthcare system, and challenges arising from discrimination and misunderstanding of the transgender community, but also take a look at how gender can be much more fluid and flexible than many of us imagine it to be. If you are part of the transgender community you'll find some helpful information here about how acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be helpful. And if you are a practitioner, you'll learn something about how to make your clinic a safe and inviting place for your transgender patients.
