Honoring gender diversity
As it is said, a picture is worth a thousand words. Today and every day, we want to thank you for involving Facialteam in your life and therefore the larger community to which we all belong.
The smiles seen in our photos symbolize a closure to the FFS journey that we have shared together in expectation. A journey of learning from one another, sharing laughter and tears of emotion with goodbyes…which are never forever!
We at Facialteam believe the value in helping another human is without parallel. This concept was emphasized by Dr. Simon one day on a train to our New York facial feminization orientations when asked why he chose to work with transgender patients;
“It’s very rewarding. It makes me strive to do the best I can at what I do.”
So we would like to show appreciation to everyone who makes our work possible: to all of our patients, volunteers at our events and the many other charity and non-profit associations who aim to raise visibility and acceptance for “girls like us”…something that not so long ago seemed, frankly, impossible. Using our communication platforms to raise visibility of the healthcare needs of the trans community is one of many ways we seek to give back.
Now more than ever society echoes the reality of gender identity, yet many voices remain to be heard. So now more than ever is the time to unite. Dr. Capitán once said on one of many trips to trans conferences, how beautiful “the amazingly infinite diversity of the human being” is.
Something to celebrate. #beyondgender
