On Monday I went up to D.C. with my partner for their second appointment at the LGBT Clinic. This appointment was a kind of like a very basic physical (except without the getting undressed or peeing in a cup or any of that awkward, unpleasant shit) , with some questions about their goals for transition, medical history and their family history and some blood work. The doctor was polite, friendly and professional and it was clear that she was comfortable and experienced with working with trans* people. My partner was also able to be honest with her about the fact that they are trans feminine and not a trans woman without risking being denied HRT. The whole visit was refreshingly quick and pleasant and, if results from the blood work are good, when my partner goes back in two weeks they should be able to come home with a prescription for Estrogen.
