Transgender Health (18+)

Transgender Health is available at Nelson-Tebedo. Transgender Health serves all members of the transgender community, age 18 and over. While this facility serves the transgender community, it operates separately from the GenderBrave program. For many transgender people in Texas, access to safe, affordable, and nondiscriminatory treatment to medically transition is difficult. The Transgender Health Program provides Gender Affirming Hormone Therapy, health screenings, and HIV and STD testing in a culturally competent and inclusive environment for all transgender people, age 18 and older. A team of volunteer medical professionals (e.g., doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners) with expertise in treating transgender patients provide supervised hormone therapy and health screenings to monitor clients’ health and ensure their bodies are absorbing medications correctly. Additionally, the program’s two volunteer licensed professional counselors are available to provide support for clients starting hormone therapy, as requested.

The Center offers low cost, comprehensive labs with hormone monitoring through consultation with our medical provider. The Transgender Health Clinic is held monthly by appointment only. Please call or email for more information.

Youth First Gender Identity Night (12-18)

Every Tuesday, 7 p.m. Youth today are coming out at an earlier age, and an increasing number are coming out as transgender and gender non-conforming (i.e., youth who reflect an identity that differs from societal expectations of gender based on birth sex). Gender Identity Night is a weekly support group designed to build confidence, support self-acceptance, and increase self-esteem by bringing transgender, gender non-conforming, and gender questioning youth together to encourage each other, discuss shared experiences, and create a peer support network. Facilitated by staff and transgender and gender non-conforming young adult volunteers, this is one of Youth First’s most popular programs. The Parents of Trans Youth Workshop provides a safe space for parents and guardians of transgender, gender-nonconforming, and gender questioning youth to learn about gender identity and expression, build support networks, and explore resources that are available to them.
