    Hey guys,

    I’m a transmasculine nonbinary person and I have recently moved to Missouri and have just decided that I want to begin the process of transitioning on low dose testosterone.

    A trans friend of mine suggested I look into planned parenthood for hrt, but upon looking at their website, the closest PP that provides hrt to trans* individuals is a five hour drive away. I was wondering if anyone else lived in or near MO who might know of other options to finding gender therapists and hormones.
    Thank you!

    Hey Romin! Are you close to KC? We have a planned Parenthood here that offers hormones. I'm sure you know this, but being trans in Missouri isn't necessarily easy, especially if you're in a small town. If you're not close to KC or STL, you're next best bet might be a city with a university in it. They usually have some resources there, or at least a group of students who know the specific services available in their area. As far as finding a therapist goes, if you got to Psychology Today's website, you can filter your searches to find nearby therapists who specialize in LGBT clientele, or are at least trans friendly. Best of luck! And what brings you to Missouri, if you don't mind me asking?
