Anonymous asked: Hey guys, I have a quick question, and I was hoping you could help. I'm a transguy, only a few months from turning eighteen and hopefully getting away from my unsupportive parents, and I was wondering if you had any recommendations for gender therapists around the Eugene/Springfield area. Traveling to Portland or somewhere within that distance would be fairly easy, too, though. Have you gone to anyone you'd highly suggest who was affordable and respectful? Anyone to avoid at all costs? Thanks!
Hi there! Unfortunately, we don’t have a Eugene admin anymore. I can give you the info for a FANTASTIC holistic doc in Portland who does not require a therapist’s letter to begin T (which is the standard now, and any doc who tells you you need a letter from your therapist is not adhering to the newest standards of care for HRT). She is a huge advocate of the trans* community and a fantastic ally to have. Her name is Dr. Angela Carter and her number is (503) 459-2584.
Hope this helps you anon!
And if any Eugene-area folx have any recommendations, please send them to our ask box! Thanks y’all, have a great day!
A quick note from the Trans*Oregon crew:
We will be putting up quite a bit of trans* and queer-related material having to do with voting and the election over the next 9 weeks until the November election takes place.
To find the resources associated with the election, candidates, voting, etc. please follow this link.
If you come across any articles, information, statistics, etc. that you think would be pertinent, please PLEASE submit them here!
Thank you all, and happy election season!
