Non-binary? How can I use hormones to affirm my identity? (09-22-2020)
In the last of this 3-part series, Annie Lakatos, NP, will share her clinical experience in extensively working with non-binary, AFAB, AMAB, genderqueer, gender expansive, and agender individuals in using hormones to affirm and align their gender identity and expression. While many non-binary+ individuals may not want to pursue hormones, some do. This session will explore the nuances of understanding what hormones might do to support a non-binary person’s identity, discuss decision-making and getting started, as well as look at effects, risks and health maintenance of using hormones. Bring your questions. Everyone is welcome!

FORGE and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, Inclusion Health Clinic have created a series of events for trans+/non-binary community members, loved ones, and supporters, to come together for support, connection, learning, and empowerment. Participants will have the opportunity to find community, feel less isolated, and learn new skills and information.
Initiated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many topics focus on medical and mental health issues, coping strategies, access to public benefits, links to resources, where/how to access support, creative expression, and some time to have some fun.
Sit back. Or lean in.
If you miss the live events, many will be recorded! (Recordings available at: https://www.youtube.com/c/FORGEForwardTrans)
