Creating the "Worthy" Patient in Transgender Medicine with Dr. Stef Shuster  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

For much of the 20th century, health providers of transgender medicine have tacitly worked within the logics of assigning "worth" to their trans patients. In the 1950s, "worth" was based upon patients who conformed to rigid gendered expectations, held respectable jobs, and acquiesced to medical authority. Notions of worth continue to shape how medical providers understand trans people, although "worth" is now covertly defined as trans people who are compliant, dutiful, and authentically trans.
