1.

Educate about Gender Dysphoria

 

We believe:

 

There are different types of GD (e.g. HSTS, AGP, ROGD, DSD-related)

People with GD deserve care and dignity

When we understand GD, we have agency in our own lives and decision-making

Support should be tailored to the individual. Different types of GD have different needs

If certain types of GD are considered unmentionable, we reinforce shame

GD is a condition, not a culture. We are free to have our own cultures and values. 

2.

Advocate for evidence-based care

We believe:

Safe-keeping is not “gatekeeping”

Clinical practices should be based on peer-reviewed evidence, not activism or ideology

Thorough assessment, mental health care and education are essential

Debate, enquiry and scientific methods are pillars of competent clinical practices

3.

Support those who detransition, regret or desist

 

We believe: 

 

Detransition is a valid choice that deserves respect and care

Many people with GD do not find relief from medical interventions

Many people with GD choose non-medical solutions to their distress

Sometimes other experiences are mistaken for GD

4.

Support sex-based rights

 

We endorse: 

 

The realities of biological sex

Women’s sex-based rights

        

LGB sex-based rights

We wish to build bridges and mend relationships with other communities

We DO NOT wish to violate the rights of others

We have both rights, and responsibilities to society
