Transgender Health and Wellness Images

Transgender health and wellness images are hard to find online. I recently collaborated with the Catherine White Holman Wellness Centre who needed images about their community health care practices for people with diverse genders.

The CWHWC provides low-barrier health and wellness services to people with diverse genders “in a way that’s respectful and celebratory of clients’ identities.”  It’s more than just a bedside manner – in the long-term, the CWHWC is addressing inequalities found in the social determinants of health. Through their work, populations who are traditionally marginalized can access health services that are specific and appropriate for them.

There’s primary care, massage therapy, acupuncture, community referrals, snacks, support, and more. Visit them online at www.cwhwc.org.
