FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Statement in support of Hamilton’s rejection of anti-trans disinformation
HAMILTON, ONTARIO, August 28, 2023 – We endorse the statement made by Hamilton Trans Health Coalition in response to a recent letter published in the Hamilton Spectator on July 21st. Attacks against trans and gender-diverse people are increasing in media and public discourse, abroad and at home. Everyone can and should learn to apply critical analysis to the disinformation and tactics employed in these attacks.
Trans youth are real. They know their genders and identities. Social affirmation and medical transition, when requested, are solidly evidence-based methods of ensuring their best health outcomes.
Access to evidence-based healthcare is a matter of access to justice. To learn more about our commitment to address unmet legal needs of the LGBTQIA+ and Two Spirit communities in Hamilton please visit queerjustice.ca.
