NCLR Launches Trans Youth Health Film

By Charlotte Robinson, November 14, 2023

The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) has kicked off Transgender Awareness Week 2023 with the launch of the Healthcare is Caring campaign to show that transgender healthcare is like any other form of essential care. It can save lives & enable people to thrive. The film was produced by Windy Films production agency & directed by Zen Pace who stated, “This film is special to me because not only does it touch my community, but it helps put forward a much more accurate story of these families that simply doesn't exist out there. It gives space to these parents; it’s a gift from their children.” The Healthcare is Caring campaign dispels inaccurate & harmful myths & showcases the positive impact of ensuring this safe, longstanding & necessary care remains available to parents seeking to provide a healthy & fulfilling life for their transgender children. Transgender healthcare is recognized as the standard of care by every major medical association including the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association & the American Academy of Pediatrics. Shannon Minter NCLR Legal Director concluded, “The families in our campaign, like so many other families with transgender children, are proof that helping transgender youth get medically needed care can enable them to lead happy & successful lives. Still, many legislators continue to push harmful policies that prevent these young people from getting the healthcare they need & deserve. We’re working to take action against these bills & show the politicians behind them that transgender youth & their families are not alone.” WATCH FILM
