Services and Networking with Dr. Bushong
  Finding knowledgeable and compassionate providers to meet your transition needs is difficult.

For this reason, I have formed a network of medical colleagues where women in transition can get the advice and experience of professionals with years of treating transsexual women. I provide help with obtaining the correct hormones/medications and proper dosing for maximum effect, the laboratory testing necessary to monitor your progress and health, and guidance to let you profit from the experience of many women who have already transitioned.

For those ready for SRS / GRS / FFS

Articles
What is Gender and Who Is Transsexual / Transgendered
  Gender is more complex than the expression of maleness or femaleness. The complex journey towards one's own personal gender expression is explored and transsexualism and transgenderism are explained.

This article will enable the reader to answer the question, "Am I transsexual / transgendered?"

This landmark paper on the theory of gender was first published in Transgender Tapestry Magazine in1995 and later presented in 1997 at the Second International Congress on Sex & Gender Issues, co-sponsored by the Human Sexuality Program in the Graduate Department of Education at the University of Pennsylvania, and The Renaissance Education Association.

An update of the paper, The Multi-Dimensionality of Gender.
 
Gender Expressions
  Based on the concepts written in Dr. Bushong's articles, Transition is Not Therapy and Informed Choice—Finding Help in the Professional Jungle, both originally published in Transgender Tapestry Magazine.

Separate fact from myth—address key questions regarding transition: What is transition?  Is transition for me?  How and where do I find help in my transition?
 
Splendor of Gender Conference
  The Splendor of Gender Conference was the first of its kind conference that brought treating professionals and the transgender community together in a learning workshop.
