PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
The Los Angeles Gender Center provides referrals to affiliate therapists who have expertise in the area of gender, gender identity, and gender dysphoria. They offer identity affirming, individual and family therapy services to children, adults, parents, and partners. Because our affiliates operate in private practice, fees, insurance, and scheduling are managed by each individual affiliate and are not determined by LAGC.
Due to COVID-19, all services are being provided via teletherapy and will be for the foreseeable future.
PEER SUPPORT GROUP
LAGC offers peer support groups for transmasculine, transfeminine, and non-binary individuals, and collaborate with Transforming Family, a support group for parents of non-binary and transgender children, adolescents, and young adults. Due to COVID-19, all groups are held via Zoom.
LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION FOR SURGERY
We believe that requiring referral letters for gender-affirming procedures is a discriminatory practice that supports the continued disenfranchisement of trans and gender non-conforming community members. We believe there is no one gender journey, narrative, or right way to transition, and each person's experience is valid. Letters will follow the Standards of Care and the insurance company's requirements and include the minimum necessary for approval.
There is no fee for this service.
LEGAL NAME AND GENDER MARKER CHANGE ASSISTANCE
Meetings are held via Zoom and provide assistance with determining if you qualify for a fee waiver, filling out all the required court paperwork, and follow up assistance with changing ID documents after you receive your court order. We can provide assistance for both adults and minors. You do not need to reside in California.
