12 Gender Neutral Gifts
A compilation of 12 Gender Neutral Gift Ideas: a guide for your loved one(s) this holiday season…
Here are listed surgeons who perform various transgender surgeries in the US. It is meant to help people find surgeons operating in their area, but is not an endorsement. Before having surgery, you should do additional research into their practices.
NOTE TO USER: To search by procedure, there is a bar at the bottom of the page. Simply click on the surgeries you would like listed. For multiple surgeons operating in one city, you might have to zoom in a bit to be able to see them all.
LANGUAGE: The procedures we have listed use the language of FTM and MTF, but we by no means do we mean to exclude genderqueer peoples in this designation. Many surgeons operate on genderqueer or non-trans people, but for the purposes of this map, it was logistically easier to distinguish based on sex characteristics as opposed to identity.

We started this project because we wanted people to be able to see where surgeons perform various trans-related surgeries throughout the US. Many times, there are not enough local resources to help a person find a close and competent surgeon, and so they must travel. As far as we can tell, there is no searchable map online that includes all of the procedures our map does, making it beneficial to all transpeople and not just FTMs.
After starting the project, however, it soon became difficult to sort through all of the information we had gathered, since we don’t live all over the US. We are in the process of reaching out to local groups in order to provide better locally-informed data. If you know of any organization or person that might be of benefit, please let us know (email@example.com). If you have any additional questions or concerns about this project, please do not hesitate to voice them.
I don’t know how old you are, and that could affect your options here. But either way, if you live with your parents, my advice is pretty much the same. First off, I want to say that there is no shame in staying in the closet if it is necessary to your survival. Many people hold off transition for safety reasons. If that’s not something you feel like you can do, then be prepared. Look for places in your area that offer support. Do you have a support network outside of your house? Friends or other, more supportive family who might offer you a place to stay? If not, the Trans* Housing Network is somewhere that you might find somewhere safe to stay. Tumblr is a great place to start to find people who you can talk to. The more of a support network you make outside the home, the more comfortable you become with yourself and with telling others about you. Sometimes your family can surprise you, but it’s never a bad idea to be prepared.
I can see where you are coming from and I appreciate the input, but I think we are going to leave it the way it is. The fact is, while there could be some confusion at first, as soon as someone looks at the map, they should know what we meant by Transgender Surgeons. We are not outing anyone (if outing was a concern, we would definitely change it). We used what we believe to be the most common wording people would search when looking for a surgeon. I hope that makes sense.
