Navigating the Trans Experience During Coronavirus/COVID
The Transgender Education Network of Texas is offering guidance for transgender patients during the pandemic. During unprecedented times like these, TENT and Legacy believe it is our duty to ensure that those among us most marginalized do not fall through the cracks. TENT has come up with a quick and easily digestible resource guide for the unique needs of our transgender siblings so that safety and health may remain paramount. The first concern brought forward by TENT is that of binding. If you begin feeling a little under the weather, consider taking a break from binding for a little while, while your body recoups. For individuals with a compromised immune system, such as those who are living with HIV or SCID, or those who are temporarily immunosuppressed, such as those currently undergoing chemotherapy or who recently had an organ transplant, taking special care to avoid close social interaction is crucial at this time. Social distancing remains critical.

The "x" makes Latino, a masculine identifier, gender-neutral. Latinx helps me remember my commitment to being disruptive in my gender expression.
