National Center for Transgender Equality

Who is NCTE?


The National Center for Transgender Equality is one of my favorite resources for legal transition for patients, but they are so much more.


Check out their mission and vision:



The National Center for Transgender Equality advocates to change policies and society to increase understanding and acceptance of transgender people. In the nation’s capital and throughout the country, NCTE works to replace disrespect, discrimination, and violence with empathy, opportunity, and justice.


NCTE envisions a society in which transgender people not only survive, but thrive, with accepting families and communities, full self-determination over their identities and bodies, and freedom from disrespect, discrimination and violence. For this vision to become a reality, we must also create equity, equal opportunity, safety, health, and economic well-being for all people over their entire lifetimes.”


Pretty sweet right?


They have phenomenal resources for patients around human rights and trans rights in different scenarios (like employment or the military). They also have great info for choosing health coverage and challenging insurance denials. 


I highly recommend you familiarize yourself with their site, so you can show patients the tools when they need them.
