This page is in the process of being updated.
In the meantime, we recommend checking out Crash’s blog, detransinfo, this site & this subreddit. Carey Callahan, an advocate for taking it easy, has written a series of useful articles available here.
A group of detransitioners issued a statement in response to detrans experiences being co-opted by the far right available here.
Please feel free to send us a message if you are detransitioning or seriously considering it and we can put you in touch with detransitioned & reidentified lesbians. There are not currently any detransition support groups or services in New Zealand that we know of.
What we know about the medical detrans process in NZ so far:
It is routine for endocrinologists to insist on a letter from 2 different psychologists or psychiatrists if you wish to stop testosterone and start oestrogen in NZ. In this circumstance, the professionals job is to assess that you are making the decision in sound mind – not to judge your decision as right or wrong.
Whanau ora services have the best reputation, so reach out to them if that is possible for you.
Naming NZ will not fund correcting legal documents for detransitioners.
If you run into a health professional particularly resistant to detransition, please consider passing their name onto us to ensure we don’t recommend that professional to any detransitioners who get in touch in future. We would also appreciate positive recommendations. We won’t publish any of these names or services publicly.
