Supportive initiatives

There are several organisations and initiatives that offer support before, during, or after a genital operation, such as:
  • Transvisie: This is a patient organisation dedicated to supporting all people and those around them with questions about gender identity.
  • Trans-United: Trans-United is een platform bedoeld voor transgenders met een bi-culturele achtergrond.
  • Transgendernetwerk: TTransgendernetwerk Nederland shares information and news about the interests of transgender persons and their close relationships. This website also provides links to ‘Transgender info’ and ‘Trans in beeld’, where additional information is provided about the community as well as a link to the media.
  • Natuurlijke haarwerken: one of many companies offering custom hair and makeup advice, from natural to extravagant.
  • De Trut: This is a non-commercial queer nightclub whose profits all are donated to LGBTQI+ projects.
  • Transmissie: This company sells corrective underwear and prosthetics for those who wish to dress more in line with their perceived gender.
