Gender-Affirmative Resources in NH and surrounding areas

This list is for informational purposes only and comes from transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse community members’ recommendations as well as professional networking. The listing of a health care or service provider is not meant to be a recommendation or endorsement of their services, only as a starting point. Please feel free to do your own research about providers. Trans and gender diverse social media groups, such as TransGender NH or New England Transgender: trans: can be a great place to ask for and read about people’s experiences with specific providers.
