Transgender rights continue to dominate headlines as legislatures across the country push restrictive laws. Those most directly affected by these measures must look at how they will access gender-affirming care, who will legally provide it and where they can find sanctuary. This month, “Flatland In Focus” examines these issues with members of the trans community and those who provide care and support.

Flatland Follow-Up

D. Rashaan Gilmore speaks candidly with Freddie Dolphus, a Black transman living in Kansas City, Missouri. The two discuss the growing number of attacks on gender affirming care, particularly in Missouri and Kansas.
