Access to health care is a fundamental human right that is regularly denied to transgender and gender non-conforming people.
Transgender and gender non-conforming people frequently experience discrimination when accessing health care, from disrespect and harassment to violence and outright denial of service. Participants in our study reported barriers to care whether seeking preventive medicine, routine and emergency care, or transgender-related services. These realities, combined with widespread provider ignorance about the health needs of transgender and gender non-conforming people, deter them from seeking and receiving quality health care.
Our data consistently show that racial bias presents a significant, additional risk of discrimination for transgender and gender non-conforming people of color in virtually every major area of the study, making their health care access and outcomes dramatically worse.

The CWLA Best Practice Guidelines for Serving LGBT Youth in Out-of-Home
Care is the first policy and practice guide to establish best practice
recommendations for working effectively with lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender (LGBT) youth in child welfare and juvenile settings. Written by
experts in the field, this publication includes step-by-step guidelines for
providing appropriate care for LGBT adolescents, based on professional
standards, the law, and current social science research.
With few exceptions, policies and professional standards governing services
to youth in out-of-home care have failed to consider young people’s sexual
orientation or gender identity. The lack of leadership and professional
guidance related to these key developmental issues left a vacuum that was
often filled by harmful and discriminatory practices based on personal biases
and misinformation rather than informed, evidence-based policies and
guidelines. In 2002, Legal Services for Children and the National Center for
Lesbian Rights launched the Model Standards Project with the goal of
addressing this void through the development and dissemination of model
professional standards governing services to LGBT youth in out-of-home care.
The practice guidelines you will find in this book are based on
recommendations from the Model Standards Project.

¿Qué significa transgénero?
Transgénero es un término global que define a personas cuya identidad de género, expresión de género o conducta no se ajusta a aquella generalmente asociada con el sexo que se les asignó al nacer. La identidad de género hace referencia a la experiencia personal de ser hombre, mujer o de ser diferente que tiene una persona; la expresión de género se refiere al modo en que una persona comunica su identidad de género a otras a través de conductas, su manera de vestir, peinados, voz o características corporales. El prefijo “Trans” se usa aveces para abreviar la palabra “transgénero”. Aunque la palabra transgénero generalmente tiene una connotación positiva, no todas las personas cuyo aspecto o conductas no coinciden con su género se identificarán como personas trans. Las maneras en que se habla sobre las personas trans en el ámbito académico, científico y de la cultura popular están cambiando constantemente, en particular, a medida que crecen la concientización, el conocimiento y la apertura sobre las personas trans y sus experiencias.
