Hi-ho all,

I frequent Reddit quite a bit and ran across a link today that could be a very valuable tool to my trans peeps. Evidently a group of psychiatrists and therapists got together and pledged to help trans people attain the letters they need for their gender confirmation surgeries. Supposedly they offer these letters for free after doing a telemedicine (online) visit.

The people who have signed the pledge to do this are both regular therapists and PhD's, which is great since you need one from each for insurance purposes. I thought you all would like to have this list just as much as I do. Sadly there are no PhD's in my state doing the letters for free so I may call bordering states and see if I can get one to work with me...if they can do so legally that is.

Here's the link:

@NicoleT you're in luck girl...there are some options really close to you.

I signed up for this list, but doubt many people need gender affirming letters from SLPs. I think it’s a great resource.

@Lexxi ....... I love this list I love that you found it. There’s absolutely no doubt I will be using it too. I have a normal counselor who will write a letter anytime. I’ve got my endocrinologist who is writing letters (although at the moment I’m not sure I’m going to stay with her so that could get dicey) I need to have a certified psychologist write a letter for me also.

Great great great information thank you so much for sharing this.

Hugs

If you're close to Iowa City, IA, the University of Iowa Hospital can also get you a free appointment with a PhD for a support letter. That was how I got my second letter for orchiectomy. It was also a virtual session, so it was extra convenient.
