New health guide released for transgender men and masculine-identified women of color

The Brown Boi Project has just released Freeing Ourselves, a new health guide for transgender men and masculine-identified women of color:

Freeing Ourselves: A Guide to Health and Self Love for Brown Bois serves as an exciting new tool for empowerment, as transgender men and women on the masculine spectrum continue to face a health sector in which they are largely invisible. For people of color in these communities, who are often uninsured, these challenges are often compounded; high levels of unemployment, discrimination in public service delivery, and income inequality are the norm, not the exception.

It’s no news that LGBT people of color are incredibly marginalized when it comes to access to competent and affordable health care. I don’t doubt this guide will a much-needed tool for this community to advocate for their health and well-being — and in a personal and empowering way.
