Transgender People and Health Care
The ACLU LGBT Project seeks to eliminate barriers that transgender people face in receiving health care, including treatments specifically related to gender transition and gender affirmation. Transition-related health care continues to be explicitly excluded from many public health care programs and private insurance policies. Even once these exclusions are lifted, we must also work to ensure that trans people have meaningful, comprehensive access to transition-related care without burdensome and unnecessary preconditions and limitations on the types of care provided.

For non-LGBT issues, please contact your local ACLU affiliate.
If you've been discriminated against based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status, the ACLU wants to hear about it.
