This project, produced on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish people — specifically the sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations, was created by a group of UBC students in ENGL 309 for the purpose of researching the current state of trans health care at UBC and around the Lower Mainland. This website consists of our class’ findings on providers, educational resources, and the history of gender-affirming care here. We hope you find this website useful.

The purpose of this project is multifaceted. In the “Education” and “History of Gender Affirming Care” pages of our website, we aim to summarize the history of gender-affirming care in BC and provide a variety of additional resources for those interested in learning more about this kind of care. Meanwhile, in the “Providers” page, we list and evaluate several gender-affirming care providers based on a specific set of criteria that we devised for those interested in accessing this kind of care. These resources are by no means comprehensive, but hopefully they offer a starting point for those hoping to develop their knowledge around gender-affirming care both at UBC and within BC as a whole.
