Quotes[edit | edit source]

"I believe that people who are affirmed in their gender identities, including being able to access gender-affirming medical care to achieve that goal, allows people to live happier and more fulfilling lives. I work with people of all genders, including those who have nonbinary identities and people of color who don’t necessarily relate to Western or mainstream notions of what it means to be a person of a certain gender."[7]
