WPATH Releases Revised "Standards of Care"
On September 25, 2011, the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) released a newly-revised edition of the Standards of Care for the Health of Transsexual, Transgender, and Gender Nonconforming People at the WPATH conference in Atlanta.
First published in 1979, the Standards of Care (SOC) is considered the standard document of reference on caring for the transsexual, transgender, and gender nonconforming population. The newly-revised, 7th edition SOC will help health professionals better understand how they can offer the most effective care to these individuals. The SOC focuses on primary care, gynecologic and urologic care, reproductive options, voice and communication therapy, mental health services and hormonal and surgical treatment. posted 10/6/2011

Face Book Needs to Update!
Facebook currently has only two options to describe your gender. The question itself improperly asks what your "SEX" is.
Tell Facebook to additionally ask your "GENDER" and to give a open field so a person may self identify.
The survey establishing transgender/transsexual identity "Who we are" has now been closed. Thank you!
