Looking for a vaginoplasty sponsor or grant for sexual reassignment surgery

Dear Dr. Reed,

I heard you have (male to female) vaginoplasty sponsors who will help underwrite the costs of my MTF vaginoplasty surgery.  I am from the southwest and will travel to make my life long cherished dream come true.


Dear Marilyn,

Surprisingly 50% of our patients come in with a sponsor.  Could be a loved one, parent(s) friend, business partner or church group and they are usually seated along side the patient during consultation.  They see a woman and so do I.  Social skills and your relationship with other who know you and support your intentions makes this possible.

If you call Anne at our office she will also offer you a compassionate discount or grant assistance, for your transgender surgery.

With every best wish,

Harold M. Reed, M.D.
Transgender Surgeon

  1. I don’t believe there is a polciy either way.. But, depending on your presentation of yourself you may have to face individual prejudice based upon ignorance. Also I’m not sure what you mean by transgender, considering that the legal definition is simply an individual who presents a different gender identity or physical expression from societies ascribed binary definition. Where as the general definition of transgender is an umbrella term used to label everything from cross-dressers, transvestites, gender-queers, gender benders, to individuals who were born with the medical condition labeled transsexuality. So, here’s the basic answer regardless if you’re a transvestite to a transsexual individual don’t push your luck by saying you have to practice your fetish, while working, if you’re a transsexual present one sex and stick with it.. Do not bounce between sexes or gender presentation and demand people to respect you for presentation at the time. Remember, you are there for Americorp to volunteer/work for them not express your gender identity, simply if you’re a male to female transsexual then simply present yourself as a woman. The idea behind what’s often called the Real Life Test or Experience (RLT/E) is for the individual to live 24/7 for at least a year as their target sex, this means even simple things like how you pee. I can’t say that I worked for Americorp, but I have provided geological/historical information for different Americorp groups as representative for the Bureau of Land Management. This biggest problem I’ve encountered with transgender or transsexual individuals a lack of consistency with their presentations to those around them, this combined with idea that they are special because. Was this answer helpful?
