OHSU Transgender Health Program strongly refutes discriminatory statements by national leaders
The OHSU Transgender Health Program, a program of the Partnership Project, stands in solidarity with transgender communities in opposition to any suggestion that gender is an unchangeable binary construct. We will not participate in any attempt to erase identities of transgender and gender diverse people.
A message for our communityIn light of recent discriminatory statements made by national leadership towards members of the transgender community, particularly those individuals serving in our military, OHSU's Transgender Health Program (a program of the Partnership Project) and the Partnership Project itself, would like to take a moment to reassure you that we remain committed to your health and wellness.
We recognize fully that the uncertainty in our political environment and gestures of intolerance can result in a wide range of emotions for patients and the community at large. We encourage you to reach out if you are experiencing distress, and would like to point out resources that we believe are good sources of support for individuals in crisis.
Know that we will remain unwavering in our mission to serve you to the best of our capacity, with full recognition of the impact of gender dysphoria on the well-being of transgender and gender diverse individuals. We will continue to be advocates at the system, community and state level for the needs of the transgender and gender diverse community, and will not let decisions at the national level deter us from this important work.
