Eve's story

HRT Access Fund recipient


Eve (she/they) is a 25-year-old trans woman seeking HRT to become the woman she's always been on the inside. Eve is dealing with a few financial problems from growing up labeled as a low-income individual. She is currently going to school for computer science and is also facing housing insecurity due to her parents not supporting her. Despite challenges, Eve is excited to show the world the woman she's always been on the inside.

Eve shares, "I can finally be free and present myself as a woman. I'll be able to wear what I've always wanted while out in public with friends and family. I can't wait to show everyone the beautiful woman I've always been." Eve is an active member in a few online trans communities and supports other individuals that are learning their gender identity.

About Estrogen+

On average, it costs $1,700+/year for Eve's care.

What is it?

Estrogen+ refers to the gender-affirming hormone replacement therapy (HRT) methods that some trans women, trans femme, and non-binary people take that result in physical changes which align with their gender identity. Every person's preferences and personal healthcare needs vary, so this can include oral medications, injections, and transdermal patches.

How accessible is it for trans folks to receive this care?

For trans folks who live in states most impacted by anti-trans healthcare legislation, it can be extremely difficult to find a knowledgeable, trans-affirming provider as well as access prescription medication. Many insurance plans do not cover HRT. For trans folks without insurance coverage, the ongoing out-of-pocket expense can be challenging.

What is the impact of this care on the recipient’s life?

Estogen+ introduces a wide range of feminizing physical, emotional, and psychological changes that align with their gender identity. This often leads to a more positive emotional well-being, increased confidence, increased safety when in public, and better opportunities at employment and more.
