This Health Humanities Portrait- The Medicalization of Trans Lives-- uses the critical analytic approach of Disability Studies to explore medicalization as a social issue that impacts trans identity. The portrait helps learners understand how the concepts often marshaled in discussions of trans health--such as diagnosis, cure, and treatment-- can actually lead to disparities in trans health and healthcare.
