Suggestions and contact

We are a group of Dutch transgender people who want to help other transgender persons. This initiative has arisen from the Facebook group "Verkeerde Aannames Transgender Zorg". This group was started in 2014 and is creating an overview of erroneous assumptions (mainly) amongst care providers for transgender people, at the moment the group has about 70 members. This group has done a poster presentation at the EPATH in Ghent in 2015. This poster is still online, together with an explanation: See


Transgender people

We read and write in the following Dutch language Facebook groups:

- Platform Transgender Info

- Verkeerde Aannames Transgender Zorg (no transgender care providers allowed)


If you have comments or suggestions for this site, we would like to hear those via the Facebook group Verkeerde Aannames Transgender Zorg. If you don’t have access to that group yet, ask for that in the group Platform Transgender Info.


We also write in the following English language Facebook group:

- WPATH Standards of Care 7
