To highlight what some of us see as a simple and necessary task, for some trans people, its a task that’s rather dodged. We’re sharing the experiences of black trans people across the country in order to highlight the many obstacles they have to overcome just to stay healthy — both mentally and physically. “The first doctor I went to seemed knowledgeable, but ultimately he made me uncomfortable because he was obsessed with my facial hair and body hair. It went beyond what it seemed like a doctor would be interested in — I felt like an eccentricity when I was in his office. I was going to him to find out about hormone replacement therapy, and for your everyday checkup. After I stopped talking to him, I went about a year-and-a-half without seeing other doctors because I didn’t want to go out on that limb again.” —Syd Robbie, 34, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Trans Man


Alicia Keys' Adele Impression Brings Down The House

Alicia Keys has been doing some amazing things over the past year. One of them was when she rocked up to the red carpet with no make-up.
