WPATH 2010 Slideshow

I know who or have met way too many people here. I also wonder about the person shown on this video before it starts, but I like the look.

SCC and WPATH 2011

Here is short report on my trip to SCC last week.

I arrived at the SCC hotel Sunday. I like to get there early. The relaxed pace of things is really wonderful.

On Monday I was in the hotel bar and I made sure the TV was on DWTS channel so we all could watch Chaz dance. 

On Tuesday we did the "Envelope Stuffing Party" where we prepare the registration packet and then when we are done we eat pizza and drink Cokes. It is always a fun evening. 

Probably the highlight of my week, other then going to dinner with all the Tennessee folks we could find, was meeting a mother Logan. She is the mother of a young transgirl who has already transitioned at a very young age and will not suffer under a purbity she does not want.

I found Logan on Facebook after watching the documentary "Sex, Lies, And Gender." I have been able to follow her and her family and I am so glad I could.


I knew she was at SCC and we finely met in Dr. Milton Diamond's seminar. Dr. Diamond is the one that exposed John Money's lies in the "John/Joan" case.

WPATH announces new standards of care for transgender and gender nonconforming people

Below seems to be a nice summary of the changes in the v.7 of the SOC. It is so long and I was pretty exhausted of 7 days of SCC and 1 day of WPATH that I have not made it threw the SOC yet. 

There are many good things so far, but I not everyone is totally happy. I have a what I hope to be a great picture of a mother of a trans-girl arguing with chair Eli Coleman right he made his summery at SCC. He neglected to mention that same thing when he gave the summery the next day at the WPATH meeting. 

Although they don't see themselves as gate keepers, I think this document will do little or nothing to change things for our local providers. 



WPATH announces new standards of care for transgender and gender nonconforming people
SEPTEMBER 25, 2011 19:57
There were champagne toasts and rounds of applause as the World Professional Association for Transgender Health released on Sunday its newest Standards of Care for the Health of Transsexual, Transgender, and Gender Nonconforming People  at a symposium at the Emory Conference Center in Atlanta.

WPATH revision committee chair Eli Coleman launched the 7th version of the standards of care to some 300 people who attended the symposium as part of a partnership with the Gay & Lesbian Medical Association and the Southern Comfort Conference, the largest transgender conference in the nation that takes place annually in Atlanta.
