WiP Adrian Kane-Galbraith (History Department University of Washington) "The Birth of the NHS Gender Identity Clinic, 1966-1970"

Adrian Kane-Galbraith (History Department University of Washington) will speak about his current research:

The latter half of the 1960s was a turning point in the provision of gender transition-related healthcare in the United Kingdom, witnessing the founding of the nation's first so-called gender identity clinic--a referral service based at Charing Cross Hospital. This talk will examine the networks of trans people, voluntary organizations, and clinicians that contributed to the consolidation of medical transition around the model of "gender identity" during this era, and will situate the Charing Cross clinic within the much longer history of gender-affirming medical interventions (usually couched under the term "sex change") undertaken under the auspices of the National Health Service.
