Hassle Free Clinic recognizes the unique sexual and reproductive health needs of trans and two-spirit people and people of trans experiences.

We are committed to improving our services, and in July 2006 we hired a trans man and a trans woman to advise and train our staff.

The clinic acknowledges that the gendered division of the clinic can compromise the accessibility and quality of care for some trans people. We encourage all trans and two-spirit people and people of trans experiences to visit the clinic where they feel more comfortable.

For the moment, there are some limitations on this:

  • Trans women and all those on the MtF (male to female) spectrum can receive a full range of services in both the Men/Trans Clinic and the women/trans clinic.
  • Trans men and all those in the FtM (female to male) spectrum can receive full services in the women/trans clinic on any day.
  • Services that do not require an internal examination (for example, HIV testing) are always available in the Men/Trans Clinic.
  • Services that do require an internal examination (for example, internal warts, genital swabs, PAP smears) are currently available at the Men/Trans Clinic only on some days (please call the Men/Trans Clinic for more details.) We intend to expand this as soon as possible.

  • We are working hard to make our waiting room into a comfortable space for all trans and two-spirit people and people of trans experiences.

    Come on in and take up space, check out our pamphlets and short articles on trans issues.

If you do feel uncomfortable in the waiting room, tell front desk staff that you would prefer to wait on the couch inside the office—a quieter, less public spot.
