To Be Announced
We will shortly be announcing new members of our Advisory Board. Watch this space…
The greatest movement for social justice our country has ever known is the civil rights movement and it was totally rooted in a love ethic.
Gender Dysphoria Alliance (GDA) was formed in 2021 as a small group of community members who are concerned about the direction that gender medicine and activism has taken. We've created this platform to give others who share our concerns a place to learn, network, teach, and tell their own stories. Our network is quickly growing and partnering with other similar groups and individuals around the world.
Though our members come from diverse cultural backgrounds, hold various political and spiritual beliefs, and different professional designations, GDA is not formally affiliated with any political party, religious organization or professional association.
Our members don't agree about everything but we are committed to thoughtful and respectful dialogue, working through complex ideas and forging a new path forward for those with GD, alongside others in our communities.
GDA does not provide medical, mental health or legal services.
We strive to be free of conflicts of interest.
