In 2016 the University of Arizona held a unique conference in transgender studies that was the first of it’s kind worldwide. It’s called Trans*studies: An International Transdisciplinary Conference on Gender, Embodiment, and Sexuality. Panelists from around the world addressed issues of access and proper transgender care within health-care structures, including the need for a gender dysphoria diagnosis for certain kinds of treatment. This was a huge step for the Tucson transgender community. More good things are in the works from the UA, like the creation of a master’s program in transgender studies. UA offers a certificate until the program is created. If you are interested inquire!!
