Medical information is needed in order to help people. Doctors cannot do their job without this knowledge. Yet we have little knowledge on trans male vaginal care. More transgender men have vaginas than not. So why are we not discussing this! I almost died. No kidding.
I am lucky, or we are lucky, that journalists reach out to me for information because there is so little of it.
This is a piece I just did for METRO paper in the UK. All about vaginal care and getting a pap.
"A trans activist is calling on doctors and nurses to encourage ‘anyone with a cervix’ to make sure they get a smear test. Buck Angel, 57, transitioned from female to male 24 years ago, but chose not to undergo bottom surgery after learning of the risks. The erotic film producer and actor has since become an advocate for normalizing trans bodies and breaking taboos surrounding gynecological care for trans men. Speaking to Metro.co.uk, he emphasized how important it is that doctors let trans and non-binary patients know they’re in ‘good hands’ during appointments.
