Who Are We Helping?
Many transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming youth find discrimination within the medical field. Rady Children’s Hospital works to create a safe environment for their health needs. Adam Lambert had the opportunity to speak with staff and patients. You can watch the conference here:
I’m so inspired by the work the staff at Rady Children’s Center for Gender-Affirming Care are doing for these young people and their families. We need more centers like this across the globe and further education on trans-health care within medical teaching. We’re in a new era with this conversation and a lot of young people are finding their true identity much earlier now; it’s beautiful to see these young people loving their identity and being their amazing selves. I’m so proud they’re from my hometown and I’m so glad the Feel Something Foundation can help to support the continued success of the center.
