Leading Transgender Health Association Releases New Guidelines


The leading transgender health association has released its much-anticipated new guidelines. One aspect noticeably different from previous editions is that the explicitly stated minimal age recommendations for minors to obtain puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries have been removed.

The new guidance also suggests that if parents do not affirm their child’s newly chosen identity, the state may be enabled to intervene in order to assist with the child’s transition.

The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) published its Standards of Care 8th Edition in International Journal of Transgender Health on September 6, 2022.
