    2024 Era Episode 2: TDOV Guest Steph DeNormand

    March 31 is International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV), which commemorates the achievements and resilience of transgender and gender-diverse (TGD) people around the world, including our own staff, patients, and supporters. 

    For Fenway Health and our Trans Health Program, it is also a time to reaffirm our commitment to providing comprehensive, compassionate healthcare and services to all members of the TGD community. 
    In honor of TDOV, we will be posting two new episodes. In the first one, we interview Steph DeNormand (They/Them), the Manager of the Trans Health Program at Fenway Health and a chapter author for Transgender and Gender Diverse Health Care: The Fenway Guide.
    Steph’s focus throughout their education and academic work has been on queer and trans theory and intersections with feminist pedagogy and medical ethics. They have been working with trans and gender diverse communities their entire professional career, and continue their community and academic work through writing, conferences, and community-driven events.
    In their position at Fenway Health, Steph has had the privilege of working directly with hundreds of trans and gender-diverse community members in navigating healthcare systems, while simultaneously engaging in the creation and management of educational and support structures for care teams working in the field. The overarching goal of this work is improving the health and wellbeing of all trans and gender diverse people.
    Tune in for our second Transgender Day of Visibility episode on Sunday, March 31.

Now, Pride is back with a new name – Boston Pride For The People – and a new mission: To make a Pride celebration that is truly for the entire community. Let’s find out more about what’s in store for this June.
