Preview of my presentation at Trans-Health

On Saturday, June 14th, I’ll be presenting at Trans-Health in Philly on the rights of trans older adults with respect to healthcare (and I’ve already started compiling resources you may find helpful).  With the help of two colleagues joining who graciously agreed to join the panel, I will tackle some of the major issues that many trans people will face as they age.  Hopefully the presentation will be helpful both for older trans adults themselves, as well as those interested in advocating for this community.

What are these key issues?  To start out, I’ll address the range of laws that can protect trans individuals from discrimination across a variety of healthcare and elder care settings, including hospitals, doctor’s offices, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and in their own homes with the help of home healthcare aides.  I will explain how ongoing changes in the law raise questions but also present opportunities for trans older adults and their allies.
