Abstract: There is a dearth of research that explores the lives and experiences of trans-identified parents. The goal of this study was to explore the experiences of trans people who sought or accessed AHR services in Ontario between 2007 and 2010. Qualitative data that was collected from 7 qualitative interviews with 9 trans people and their partners was analyzed for the present analysis. Results from this study indicate that AHR providers do not possess sufficient knowledge about trans people, trans identities and trans lives to adequately address the needs of trans service users. Specific provider practices that trans people experienced as being unhelpful are illuminated and implications for improving clinical practices are discussed.
