With Medicare Done, How We Can Win the Rest
Monday, June 16 | 3:00 pm
After years of advocacy, healthcare programs are finally catching up to the medical consensus on transgender healthcare.
We will soon be able to cross off medical exclusions from our policy agenda. But while the path forward is clearer than ever, much more work remains.
The recent Medicare ruling opens coverage for transition-related care and that victory is part of a national strategy to end prejudice in the U.S. healthcare system.
Join this community call to learn about the next phase in advocating for transgender healthcare rights in public and private insurance plans.
Participants will also have an opportunity to learn more about the significance of the Medicare ruling and where it fits in the scheme of achieving inclusive
coverage across the board.

GLAD Community Call: With Medicare Done, How We Can Win the Rest
This coming Monday GLAD (Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders) is hosting a Community Call about trans healthcare post-Medicare-ruling, with National Center for Transgender Equality, Human Rights Campaign and Center for American Progress. And they used my photo at the bottom of this email – I was part of their photo shoot for promo materials in August 2008.
