Trans Awareness Week
Trans Awareness Week is a chance to celebrate the trans and gender diverse community. It’s also the ideal time to learn about gender diversity, and the importance of being a trans ally.At Eleanor Clinic we embrace gender diversity and offer trans care, following the AusPATH model of gender affirming care for adults. We also proudly work together with the gender clinic at the Royal Children’s Hospital to support children and teens and their families. Every year, Trans Awareness Week finishes with the whole community observing Trans Day of Remembrance. It’s a chance to celebrate the trailblazers throughout history that have fought for trans rights, and honour the ones who have lost their lives due to violence and discrimination. It’s important to note that this sort of violence still exists, and isn’t just an ugly footnote in history – and that’s exactly the reason why Trans Awareness Week is so important. Everyone has the right to safe, inclusive health care – and we’re glad we can play a little part in that.
