Medical Therapy and Health Maintenance for Transgender Men: A Guide For Health Care Providers

R. Nick Gorton MD, Jamie Buth MD, and Dean Spade Esq

This book was originally written in Open Office (version 1.1.1). It has been exported to both Adobe Acrobat and MicroSoft Word format. This book is copylefted. This means it is provided free under the GNU Free Documentation License – it is free as in free speech, not free as in beer. You may may copy it, print it, give it to friends, host it on your website, and sell copies of the book or disk. You can even modify it and distribute it in modified form (as long as you indicate that it is a modified work and as long as the derivative work is available under the same free license.)

While this book is free to use, it wasn’t free to make. Significant effort went into its production. If you found this useful and would like to donate to save the clinic where I’ve been working for the last 15 years: or the Sylvia Rivera Law Project (where Dean Spade works.)

Future editions of this are planned. Check back here to find out when the second edition will be released. Comments, suggestions, and questions are welcome. You can email me at nickgorton @
