A history of trans health care in Australia : A report for the Australian Professional Association for Trans Health (AusPATH)
Riseman, Noah. (2022). A history of trans health care in Australia : A report for the Australian Professional Association for Trans Health (AusPATH) Australia: Australian Professional Association for Trans Health (AusPATH).
This report provides an overview of the history of medical discourse and trans health care in Australia. There has long been a symbiotic and at times paradoxical relationship between medicine and trans and gender diverse people. The advent of new medical technologies has meant new opportunities for trans and gender diverse people to affirm their genders in different ways. The administration of health care – be it hormones, surgery or other treatments – has necessitated oversight and training. Yet, this has also meant that health care providers have exerted control and served as ‘gatekeepers’ determining who could access care. The line between safety and control has always been blurry, and it has also consistently been shifting.
