5. Perhaps a doctor said or did something you’re pretty sure they wouldn’t do to someone who wasn’t transgender, black, or both.
Maybe they refused to use your preferred pronoun or made sweeping generalizations without ever actually asking about your lifestyle.
6. It could have been something else, like a receptionist criticizing your name or the way you looked.
Maybe they said snide or even outright mean things to you. And because of this mistreatment, you knew that place wasn’t the right one for you — even if it was just to get checked up for a nagging cough or an eye exam. Maybe such an instance even forced you to travel two hours now just to see someone who’s trans-friendly and knows what they’re doing.
8. We want to know about your health care experiences.
You can submit your story (anonymously, if you want to) in the form below. You can also view the form here, which might be easier on mobile. Please share as much detail as you can — vent to us! The more we know about your experience, the more likely it is that we can include you in a future post. Your story, whether related or unrelated to transition, could help other people with their own medical struggles.
