Sheltering Transgender Men: Providing Welcoming Services

After a short description of who transgender men are and what they have experienced related to intimate partner violence and shelter, this document addresses new federal legal requirements for serving and/or providing comparable services to transgender men. Specific how-tos concerning placement, names and pronouns, documentation, safety and respect concerns, confidentiality, sleeping arrangements, dressing/disrobing, room decoration, bathrooms and showers, and hormone medications make up the bulk of the publication. Also includes explicit sections on typical and unique supplies trans men may need and how to foster a shelter culture of respect and wholeness. Includes a glossary and resources.
