Non-binary Transgender Patients Access Healthcare Less Often

Healthcare providers should acknowledge gender diversity among their patients and consider further training in gender identity, experts say. 

Their study, recently published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, examined the demographics of 415 transgender people in Germany and reported on their use of transition-related healthcare. 

Most of the participants identified themselves in binary terms. However, 18% were categorized as non-binary genderqueer (NBGQ) and used words like bigender, genderfluid, and agender to describe themselves. 

NBGQ individuals tended to be younger than binary participants. They also accessed healthcare less frequently. 

Please click here to learn more about the study, including the differences between the two groups and the authors' thoughts on working with binary and NBGQ patients.
