Gendercast Episode 23: Informed Consent for Access to Trans Health (ICATH), Interview with Calvin Burnap and A. Canelli
Join Gendercast for an interview with Seattle-based trans advocates and therapists, Calvin Burnap and A. Canelli, who will discuss the informed consent model for accessing trans health and their local and collaborative ICATH project. Our discussion will cover the importance of self-actualization and autonomy in decision-making (and therapy), rejection of using Gender Identity Disorder (GID) and pathologizing trans* people accessing hormomes or surgery, and the non-proprietary philosophy of ICATH.
Calvin Burnap is a queer and trans therapist of color in Seattle, Washington, praciticing within a framework of collective healing and empowerment. He has been wrking as a service provider since 2007 and frames his work towards the liberation of queer and trans people of all ages and expressions of gender.
Canelli is a trans/queer therapist who is also a trans and queer advocate. Canelli's work is based in Seattle, Washington, but liberation work is portable and can traverse many spaces.
