This article explores trans identities, as articulated within a few historical texts. From early literary depictions of gender difference, to medicalized conceptions of transsexualism, to a proliferation of trans and queer identities represented by an ever-expanding "alphabet soup" of identity labels, our understandings of identities, sexualities, and queer community-building continue to change. I utilize the notion of "kind-making," as elaborated upon in the work of Ian Hacking, to illustrate that some queer and trans identifications are affiliative, while others are contrastive or oppositional in nature, and these structural differences have important implications with respect to understanding identity and sexuality, and also trans inclusion within LGBT communities and activist efforts...

BACKGROUND: Societal awareness of transgender individuals has led to increased acceptance and demand for sex-confirming surgery. In female to male transsexuals, the most common procedure is removal of breast tissue to masculinize the chest. METHODS: Eighty-eight transgender patients underwent either a subcutaneous nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) with or without a periareolar mastopexy or nipple reduction, or bilateral mastectomies with free nipple grafts (MFNG) with or without nipple reduction...

BACKGROUND: Gender reassignment surgery (GRS) can lead to discrimination. This transition makes great demands on the individual and also affects the social environment. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the social support of male-to-female (MtF) transgender people. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Group A comprised 254 consecutive MtF transsexuals, who received a penile inversion vaginoplasty between 2004 and 2010. These women were surveyed retrospectively...

Previous research has indicated that biological older brothers increase the odds of androphilia in males. This finding has been termed the fraternal birth order effect. The maternal immune hypothesis suggests that this effect reflects the progressive immunization of some mothers to male-specific antigens involved in fetal male brain masculinization. Exposure to these antigens, as a result of carrying earlier-born sons, is hypothesized to produce maternal immune responses towards later-born sons, thus leading to female-typical neural development of brain regions underlying sexual orientation...

The World Health Organization (WHO) is currently updating the tenth version of their diagnostic tool, the International Classification of Diseases (ICD, WHO, 1992). Changes have been proposed for the diagnosis of Transsexualism (ICD-10) with regard to terminology, placement and content. The aim of this study was to gather the opinions of transgender individuals (and their relatives/partners) and clinicians in the Netherlands, Flanders (Belgium) and the United Kingdom regarding the proposed changes and the clinical applicability and utility of the ICD-11 criteria of 'Gender Incongruence of Adolescence and Adulthood' (GIAA)...

Trans persons, including transvestites and transsexual women, show disproportionately high HIV/AIDS rates when compared to the rest of the population. However, few quantitative/qualitative studies have addressed trans persons in Brazil. Thus, a team of researchers from different fields is developing an interdisciplinary research project with the objective of shedding light on living conditions and ways of life among transvestites and transsexual women, while investigating determinant factors for HIV infection, syphilis, and hepatitis B and C...

Retention standards and policies applied to active duty members in the U.S. military who identify as transgender have recently been in evolution. The Secretary of Defense recently released a new directive allowing transgender members to serve openly with the option to transition gender while in active duty, abrogating the old policy disqualifying transgender members from continued service. There is a reasonable expectation that some may pursue medical and surgical options toward gender transition. The clinical pathway for gender transition relies heavily on Mental Health and Endocrinology services...

OBJECTIVE: Female-to-male transition remains a specific clinical indication for long-term testosterone administration. There is a limited number of studies dealing with the effect of androgen treatment on their female receptive targets (mainly breast and uterus) and the knowledge in this field is scarce and, sometimes, contradictory. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a prospective study including 12 patients aged between 20 years and 32 years, with a diagnosis of gender dysphoria, treated with parenteral testosterone administration before sexual reassignment surgery...

CONTEXT: To date, there are few studies investigating the impact of body changes induced by cross-sex hormonal treatment (CHT) on psychobiological well-being in gender-dysphoric persons (GDs). OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to assess whether CHT-related body changes affect psychobiological well-being in GDs. METHODS: A consecutive series of 359 GDs was considered for a cross-sectional section of the study. In addition, 54 GDs were studied in a 2-year follow-up...

INTRODUCTION: The creation of a neophallus is a complex surgery that must meet functional and esthetic requirements. It is a long and demanding surgical process whose final stage consists of the implantation of a rigid or inflatable material that can be used to reproduce an erection. Data in the literature are scarce, with only the pioneering series present, which includes the use of the first devices and techniques. AIM: To report the outcome of patients with phalloplasty after implantation of erectile implants using standardized surgical techniques and the use of recent prosthesis types with or without a vascular graft...

INTRODUCTION: Transmen are generally dissatisfied with their breasts and often opt for mastectomy. However, little is known about the specific effects of this procedure on this group's body image. AIM: To prospectively assess the effect of mastectomy on the body image of transmen, including cognitive, emotional, and behavioral aspects. METHODS: During a 10-month period, all transmen applying for mastectomy were invited to participate in this study...

This article reviews the literature on intersexuality (disorders of sex development [DSD]) and transsexuality in Egypt. Egypt's resources for the diagnosis and treatment of rare conditions, such as DSD and transsexualism, are quite limited. The birth of a child with a DSD is likely to be stressful, especially in regard to decisions on gender assignment, and genital abnormalities are associated with stigma and shame. Gender assignment may be biased toward the male gender, because female infertility precludes marriage and female gender adversely affects employment prospects and inheritance...

OBJECTIVE: To introduce a postoperative protocol to optimize the final size of the penis in patients undergoing metoidioplasty. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fourteen patients with the mean age of 29.3 years (8-40 ± 11.7), ten female transsexuals (46 xx karyotype) and four with 5-alpha-reductase deficiency syndrome (5ARDS) who had undergone extensive metoidioplasty entered a penile improvement protocol (PIP) between 2007 and 2015 at a specialized clinic in a general hospital in Tehran, Iran...

There is sparse prospective data on the effects of testosterone therapy on the voices of transgender men (also referred to as trans men or female-to-male transsexuals). Our aim was to investigate the timing and degree of voice deepening over 12 months among an ethnically diverse sample of transgender men. This was a prospective 12-month study at an academic outpatient endocrinology clinic and speech and voice center. The participants were seven transgender men naïve to testosterone therapy. All patients received two voice assessments at baseline and one assessment at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months while on intramuscular testosterone esters...

In 1966, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine became the first American medical institution to perform sex reassignment surgeries. This article interrogates the relationship between the emergence of this clinical therapy in the United States and the changing medical understandings of the contemporaneous condition it was intended to address - 'transsexualism.' I argue that, during the mid-to-late twentieth century, therapeutic practices and theories about the etiology of transsexualism were mutually constitutive...

BACKGROUND: Acquired or congenital absence of the penis can lead to severe physical limitations and psychological outcomes. Phallic reconstruction can restore various functional aspects of the penis and reduce psychosocial sequelae. Moreover, some female-to-male transsexuals desire creation of a phallus as part of their gender transition. Because of the complexity of phalloplasty, there is not an ideal technique for every patient. This review sets out to identify and critically appraise the current literature on phalloplasty techniques and outcomes...

ICD-11 (the eleventh edition of the World Health Organization International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems) is due for approval in 2018. For transgender health care, the most important proposals for ICD-11 are as follows: (1) the five ICD-10 diagnoses (most notably Transsexualism and Gender Identity Disorder of Childhood) currently in Chapter 5 (Mental and Behavioural Disorders) will be replaced by two Gender Incongruence diagnoses, one of Adolescence and Adulthood and the other of Childhood (GIC), and (2) these two diagnoses will be located in a new chapter provisionally named Conditions Related to Sexual Health...

BACKGROUND: Gender reassignment surgery due to transsexualism (International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision: F64.0) is a procedure becoming increasingly common worldwide as a result of a significant increase in diagnostic incidence. Several methods have been described for this complex surgery, but no internationally agreed upon gold standard exists, in particular with regard to which methods allow for creating a sufficient neovaginal depth. METHODS: We use a 2-stage technique using solely penile skin for creating a neovaginal cavity and present the long-term outcome in terms of measured neovaginal depth...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to review the evidence of the effectiveness of pitch-raising surgery performed in male-to-female transsexuals. METHODS: A search for studies was performed in PubMed, Web of Science, Science Direct, EBSCOhost, Google Scholar, and the references in retrieved manuscripts, using as keywords "transsexual" or "transgender" combined with terms related to voice surgery. We included eight studies using cricothyroid approximation, six studies using anterior glottal web formation, and six studies using other surgery types or a combination of surgical techniques, leading to 20 studies in total...
