From looking for competent therapists and doctors to affirming places for clothes and fitness, finding resources as a trans or non-binary person can be difficult. This guide draws together resources that trans people have used in Austin and Central Texas. Topics include therapists, support groups, psychiatrists, HRT, dentists, OB/GYNs, surgeons, hair removal, fertility services, housing, transportation, food, employment, education, clothing and binders, legal support and much more!
