Gender Transitioning

Gender Transitioning is a process transgender people undergo to align with their gender identity. It is part of the treatment for gender dysphoria and can help alleviate the distress it causes.

Ways to transition:

  • Social transition (involves changing their gender expression)
  • Medical transition (involves changing their body).

People who wish to transition may undertake one, all, or none of these steps.

Sexual Minorities and Depression

Studies have consistently shown that the rates of depression, anxiety, and suicide are high in the LGBTQ+ community.

Studies have also shown that kids and teens experiencing gender dysphoria and/or questioning their sexual orientation are more vulnerable to depression. 

People in sexual minority groups often lack equitable access to health care, including mental health services. While they may begin in youth, these disparities can persist into adulthood.
