National Center for Gender Spectrum Health

National Center for Sexual Health

The mission of the Center is to eliminate gender-based stigma and discrimination, support the development of healthy gender identity through an intersectional lens for all across the lifespan, and to improve the quality of health and life of transgender and gender diverse individuals and patients, families, and communities through scientific research, clinical practice, policy work, and education.

The vision of the Center is to: 1) promote scholarship by those who are trans-identified; 2) forward empiricism that is based on the real lived experience of trans-identified people; 3) challenge cisnormativity in healthcare; and 4) promote pleasure and positive sexuality for all bodies.
