Educational Resources for Transgender, Intersex & Two-Spirit People (including Gender Non-Conforming Youth & Trans Seniors)

Rupert Raj (66) has been a Eurasian-Canadian, pansexual, trans activist since 1971, founding six support groups/service organizations for transsexuals and cross dressers. As a former psychotherapist/gender consultant from 2000 to 2015, he counseled queer, transgender, genderqueer, intersex and Two-Spirit people. In 2013, he was inducted into the Canadian Lesbian & Gay Archives, where “the Rupert Raj collection” is housed. His three books include: Trans Activism in Canada: A Reader (co-edited with Dan Irving, Canadian Scholars’ Press, 2014), Of Souls & Roles, Of Sex & Gender: A Treasury of Transsexual, Transgenderist & Transvestic Verse (unpublished, 2017, revised 2018; available online through the Transgender Archives), and Dancing the Dialectic: True Tales of A Transgender Trailblazer (self-published, 2017). The following is a collection of educational files compiled or written by Rupert Raj, covering a range of topics such navigating healthcare as a person of trans experience, as well as resources for certain subgroups of the community.
