Subject:Ohio therapists: Feo, Brooke Kroto, Jaime Bishop
Time:11:44 am
**cross posted to Transgender and FTM

Anyone have experience with any of these therapists: Antone Feo, Brooke Kroto, and Jaime Bishop?

I have contacted them by e-mail (and will follow-up by phone) but wanted also to get some anecdotal perspective. Specifically:

1) What kind of questions were you asked in the first session?
2) How closely did they follow the WPATH Standards of Care?
3) What did they require for a letter for hormones?
4) How long (# of sessions or time frame) did you have to wait to get the letter?

For background info, I am looking to go to counseling for the sole purpose of getting a letter to start hormones.

I am located near Cleveland, and would prefer to go the informed consent route, but the closest physician I have found who follows informed consent is 2 hrs away in Columbus, and this is impractical for ongoing monitoring.

Subject:Join the Tribeca Protest Over "Ticked Off Trannies" Film
Time:04:10 pm
A demonstration against the Tribeca Film Festival's choice to feature the movie "Ticked Off Trannies With Knives" will take place in NYC tonight. The movie promotes transphobia and makes light of the rape and violence all too often directed at transwomen. In addition to the offensive title of the movie, the film portrays transwomen as being performers.

Subject:looking for NE Ohio doctors--informed consent
Time:09:00 pm
cross-posted to ftm

I live near Cleveland, and am looking for a physician or endocrinologist who works with trans people and who does informed consent (i.e., doesn't require a letter from a therapist.)  I don't feel the need for talk therapy--I've dealt with this own my own over the course of several years--and really am just ready to get started on hormones.

Does anyone know of anything in the Cleveland/NE Ohio area?

I don't have health insurance, so cost is a factor (though not necessarily a prohibitive one.)

Subject:quick question
Time:01:45 am
Does anyone know of good therapists specializing in trans issues or ones that are at least trans-friendly in the northeast? Specifically, I'm in Akron area, but if I have to drive to Cleveland, so be it. My last therapist (at Ridgewood Rd Counseling Center) was a source of a great deal of frustration, as, among other things, after I had discussed being trans with him, he continued to consistently refer to me by the wrong pronouns and by my birth name even after I corrected him and would talk about "and other women ___" (I'm FTM). Essentially, I'm looking for something better, as I'm no longer seeing him.

Hello all,

so I’ve recently moved back to Ohio from New York and I would really like to try and start T within the year. I know that my old therapist will write me a letter, but what I really need is either an endo or just an md that will do the actual testosterone part. I live near Sandusky but will be going school in Toledo so if anyone know of any doctors or endos in the northwestern part of ohio, would you let me know? it’d be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Eli

Hi everyone. I'm looking for a Transgender Day of Remembrance vigil in Cincinnati, but all I can seem to find are notices for a vigil in Columbus. Anyone have info on an event in my area?

Thanks!
