Anne Vitale, American psychologist

General authenticity is the clinical focus of Anne Vitale, a trans-identified, American psychologist specializing in existential-humanist psychotherapy. Vitale provides therapeutic support for cross-dressing and gender-divergent clients in such a way as to skillfully combine therapist advocacy and self-empowerment of the client. Specifically, she employs a client-centred, open-minded approach to helping her trans and questioning clients to take responsibility for discovering and actuallizing their own particular form of life meaning and personal power. This supported quest for identity and validation typically involves a dovetailing of genderal integrity, community connection, and existential authenticity.

The newest generation in medical electrolysis and skin care. Our company was formed in 1986 under the name E2000, when it was noticed that the unique needs of the transgender community were not being met. A safe and permanent manner of hair removal was implemented to meet these needs. Because of this desired and effective form of electrolysis, conventional methods were thrown out, and the idea of “marathon” sessions was born!

Cricothyroid surgery approximation.

Cricothyroid approximation was one of the most common surgeries of the past 20 years used to change the relaxed pitch of the voice. The normal action of the cricothyroid muscle is to increase tension of the vocal cord margin by lengthening the vocal cord. The vocal quality produced by this increase in tension of the vocal cord is called falsetto. Contraction of this muscle brings the thyroid cartilage and cricoid cartilage into approximation in the anterior midline, so CTA surgery effectively sutures the cricothyroid muscle into a permanent position of contraction, although the degree is variable.

Transgender Netwerk Nederland.

The Dutch foundation Transgender Netwerk Nederland, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Transgender Netwerk Nederland is the foundation that works nationally for the emancipation of transgender people and their environment. Combating discrimination against transgender people is one of our most current spearheads. Our goal is to enable a gender diverse society. Emancipation of transgender people is still badly needed. There is much unknown about this group of people. This causes prejudice and discrimination. An additional obstacle is the norms and ideas about the body and about gender that are widely present in society. They make the prejudices more difficult to combat. Sustainable acceptance of all transgender people can therefore only succeed in a gender-diverse society.

Transgender Netwerk Nederland is de stichting die zich landelijk inzet voor de emancipatie van transgender personen en hun omgeving. Bestrijding van discriminatie van transgender personen is één van onze meest actuele speerpunten. Ons doel is een genderdiverse samenleving mogelijk maken. Emancipatie van transgender personen is nog hard nodig. Er bestaat veel onbekendheid over deze groep mensen. Dit veroorzaakt vooroordelen en discriminatie. Bijkomend obstakel zijn de normen en ideeën over het lichaam en over geslacht die in de samenleving breed aanwezig zijn. Die maken de vooroordelen moeilijker te bestrijden. Duurzame acceptatie van alle transgender personen kan daarom alleen slagen in een genderdiverse samenleving.
