Abstract

Individuals who identify as transgender are often faced with social, economic, medical, and political barriers that require guidance from knowledgeable organizations. Such organizations have experience in providing medical care, counseling, support groups, legal assistance, and social services. We have therefore compiled a list of some of the notable national and international resources for transgender individuals. Here we describe some of these in more detail.
