Medicine is finally starting to catch up with the times, but there's a long way to go. On this show we talk with Dr. Blair Peters, a board certified surgeon who specializes in gender affirming surgery. Historically, a majority of gender-affirming surgeries had been performed, in a sense, behind closed doors -- barely visible and hidden away from mainstream academic medicine. Dr. Peter's is not just one of the first surgeons trained in gender fellowship, he is at one of the few centres in the country performing phalloplasty. Dr. Peters is also an incredible advocate for the LGBTQIA community for equal rights in gender alignment healthcare.
