On Saturday March 12, 2022, Genspect hosted a webinar for Detrans Awareness Day. We handed the mic to detransitioners, so they could tell their own stories. No rules. No filters. No holds barred.

The detransitioner community is growing fast, as more and more young people realize they received inadequate healthcare. Our brave guests spoke out about their own treatment pathways, what they’ve learned about the gender healthcare industry, and what they’ve learned about themselves.
