Transblazer is a multi-year project that aims to make medical knowledge about the transitioning process and beyond easier to access to low income transgender and gender-variant people of color. Transblazer will work towards achieving this goal by creating a workshop for low income transgender and gender-variant people of color to learn about the process of transitioning. It will culminate in an app that includes medical information about transgender, intersex, questioning, and non-binary individuals. For the purpose of this Blueprint for Social Justice, Transblazer will focus on the strategic distribution of patient educational materials, the development of a healthcare provider training, and a phone application to make imperative data more accessible to transgender and gender-variant people of color along with allied organizations that want to improve their support to this demographic.
