Fenway Health provides primary medical and mental health care, and supportive services, that are sensitive to the needs of people who identify on the transgender spectrum.
The Transgender Health Program at Fenway helps to ensure quality and informed care for trans women, trans men, gender-queer, affirmed men and women, and others who have health care needs unique to gender expressions and identities that may vary from societally imposed expectations or norms.
Fenway provides supportive and sensitive care regardless of gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, religion, or socio-economic status.
