When Perry Cohen experienced an urgent health concern earlier this year, his town’s only care provider who specializes in working with LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) patients wasn’t available to see him.
He went to a different doctor, then to a second. Both times, when the providers learned that Cohen is transgender, “their faces fell,” he recalled.
