The Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP), Audre Lorde Project (ALP), and Make the Road New York (MRNY) have been working to get Medicaid in the state of NY to repeal their transphobic ban of providing gender-related healthcare for Trans and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) folks. On December 17, 2014 the Department of Health and Governor Cuomo announced edits that will provide preventative check-ups, hormones (18+) and surgery (21+) for New Yorkers regardless of gender identity!
While we are still seeking coverage for youth and the removal of “cosmetic” exclusions, this is a huge victory for our campaign. And after all the planning, petitioning, and protesting it’s time for us to mark our accomplishments and CELEBRATE!
Join us to break bread, build community and bask in our own fabulousness! Dress up if you want too!
