Gender-affirming care is life-saving health care, and medically necessary for the well-being of many transgender and non-binary people. Read our guide Supporting & Caring for Transgender Children, produced in partnership between the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the American College of Osteopathic Pediatricians (ACOP), a groundbreaking resource that explains how families and healthcare professionals are helping transgender children thrive. You can also check out our resource page to get more facts about gender-affirming care.
Gender clinics that offer transgender and non-binary young people access to age-appropriate, comprehensive, multidisciplinary clinical care have emerged over the past two decades. These comprehensive youth gender clinics typically combine providers from different specialties to meet the varied physical and mental health needs of transgender and non-binary youth and their families and offer or connect them to an array of other services, such as support groups, playgroups, and legal services.
Click on a pin on the map below to see more information about some of these clinics. This map was originally generated based on an article in Pediatric Annals, as well as information from the clinics, and is meant to be a starting point for youth and their parents. Please note that this map only includes comprehensive multidisciplinary programs. There may be other smaller specialized practices that are inclusive of or focus on transgender and gender-expansive children and youth that are not included in this map, so we encourage families to look further into other care options in their area. Please note that only a limited amount of information about the services provided is listed on this map and/or the websites of the clinics. We encourage you to reach out directly to the clinic to learn more about their services.
HRC would like to thank Jennifer Leininger and Sam Hsieh of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago for their permission to use descriptions of many of these facilities which were originally published in Pediatric Annals (June 2014, Volume 43,Issue 6: 238-244).
Note: HRC has not evaluated every program listed, but we will actively investigate any claims of negative treatment. Please send us feedback if you find any of these facilities less than affirming and welcoming.
