We all have the right to see a doctor regularly and get the health care we need. But too often, if you're black and trans, finding that care might be harder than it should be.
So tell us, what barriers to good medical care have you faced as a black trans person?
Maybe you've been to several doctors, and none were knowledgable about hormone therapy or transition care, so they turned you down.
Or maybe it wasn't your doctor that was the problem, but your insurance company instead.
Perhaps a doctor said or did something you're pretty sure they wouldn't do to someone who wasn't transgender, black, or both.
It could have been something else, like a receptionist criticizing your name or the way you looked.
Or maybe — hopefully — you finally found a physician or clinic that respects you, listens to, AND accepts your insurance.
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.
