Making info materials to hand out at London Trans Pride

I've already sorted the DIY info I'm going to be handing out at Pride events this summer (and it's updated with a simpler design than the OP pic since Terje is making a webpage with a simple URL to link to with a brief primer on DIY & links to resources, including hrt.cafe, chloe's guides, r/transdiy and so on) but there's a couple of other things I need help with from folks here if possible:

-I need to order a more up-to-date placard on the trans teens issue - What is the most robust study to date on the advantage of access to puberty blockers or early HRT (i.e. 16 or under)? I know there's been a couple by Keuroghlian and one by Turban but I think those have had holes poked in their methodology by now in the comments of the journal sites where they're published, but I remember there being more recent ones since

-I'm going to make newsletter-style flyers specifically on info that normally flies under the radar e.g. the fact blockers have not resumed prescription despite the Bell ruling being overturned, and the minox + dermarolling technique to maxx hairline regrowth, but one thing I really want to have front and centre is links to grassroots charities and fundraising groups, like, queer anarchist type stuff, for PoC and sex workers specifically, also disabled tranners if there's any for that, so if you know any groups like that let me know here or join my Discord - Chelsea Poe was bitching at me for saying that I don't think we need to sacrifice activism for white trans teens lacking any access to pre-adulthood transition anywhere in the UK in order to also amass attention towards the trans women of colour in developing countries like the US who are the most likely to be actually murdered, and I want to prove her wrong, I don't think it's a zero-sum game because we're nowhere near at capacity for community organising yet

    I'm gonna make a separate flyer too, intended for the cis normies observing the parade, with *just* the fundraising links and maybe a bit of info on the trans teens stuff & a bit on the anti-trans movement being funded by crazy christian yanks since a lot of brits who normally wouldn't give a shit about trans kids roping will side against the bible-thumpers for being improper because they speak too loud and cheery instead of constantly wearing a look of weary resignation and acceptance that they shouldn't try and change the world they live in at all like we do
    Come to think of it I might include a bit of the 'rightoids are groomers doing a DARVO' stuff too

    Anyway yeah, any robust early transition studies and PoC/SW/disabled grassroots orgs looking for donations (especially - but not exclusively - UK ones) is what I need if anyone can help.

    If you're in the UK and have active ideas or connections that could help in spreading DIY information to trans people, or briefing more cis people on the tervert situation & all the bad things about it that might bring them on-side (remember, if there's one thing britbongs can't stand it's someone having the nerve to think they can change something for the better, which *should* make terves our natural enemy), join my Discord but please be aware it's more intended for collating resources and doing useful things than a social space: https://discord.gg/kAMJsKRv

      I am begging you not to do this. TERFs will find out and make it even harder for trans youth. You simply need to tell people with word of mouth. Do not print flyers.

      yep this thing is retarded. every tranny with an internet connection knows about DIY. The biggest trap was Susans and I wish that site would fucking die as it ruined my life. DIY should be tranny knowledge only not public.
      Word of mouth is fine no flyers. Also please be safe Robin terfs are unironic criminals.

        I grew up in Suffolk. I didn't know HRT was a thing until I was 19 and no longer lived at home, I thought some boys were just born looking like that (and I only thought even that from 15 onwards, didn't even know LGBT people were a thing til then and was baffled by my being attracted to guys as well as girls). Not everyone grows up in some hipster place like Austin or Portland where you watch Euphoria in class on the last day of term or whatever

          I’m not American, nor is trans/gay shit a big thing here. But literally anyone with an internet connection nowadays can figure out how to DIY

          I’m not from Suffolk myself so I don’t know the environment. But I’m a few hours away from London

          most zoomers don't even know how to use a computer

          You greatly underestimate the average zoomer anon

            You can only figure out how to DIY if you know that DIY is a concept that exists, or again, even HRT
            Think of how many people watched Euphoria and thought Jules was cis and injecting heroin, people are idiots

              I found out that you could inject hormones online at 14 and figured it out from there

              The better solution would be to do this online since zoom zooms hardly ever go outside

          Susans was what stopped me. Trust me millenials like us who downloaded anime on limewire can be very stupid too... Actually that was stupid even back then think I fucked up a couple of computers lol

      Literally printing them on soluble paper this time so they can be destroyed with water or saliva rather than anyone be caught with one

      ur gonna get estrogen made to be a controlled substance robin

      The worst that can happen is it moves onto the dark web and we have to tell people to pay in crypto, oh no

      DIY resources exist to be used, I'm not going around waving signs in front of journos, if nobody ever gets told DIY is a thing the people who need it won't know it exists so as to look it up, and it'll just die out like how most zoomers think a Mega link is a virus thing when they see one, let alone know what Soulseek or P2P or a private tracker is, because none of them got taught about piracy by our generations

        Worst case scenario, it becomes more difficult to prescribe, it has a harder time getting through customs, and it becomes more difficult to access.

              they're incredibly social media savvy and good at navigating very precise tasks and settings, but when it comes to under-the-hood stuff most of them are clueless

          Most zoomers couldn't even tell you what Task Manager is, they've been thought to think entirely inside of the box when it comes to systems because technology has been a black box to them growing up with no modding and self-repairs etc. allowed

          Most trans people are "aware" of DIY, but very few actually know how to access it and do it

            The thing is you have to dig for stuff online if you want to find it. You can easily find people online willing to help you out if you look for them

        Have you in your completely fucked mind ever considered that putting that stuff on the dark web might make it less accessible to the average tranny? Like the bar to try this will be way higher.

        Also your whole soluble paper idea is defeated by someone of the 100s of people your giving these to, taking a picture and tweeting it.

        Un fucking real how fucking braindead you are.

          I've literally given out HRT info to like 500 people at protests over the past couple of years already and not one problem has occurred, the benefit/risk shit works out heavily on the side of benefit at this point, if the situation changes I'll adapt my methods but right now there's a lot of people being forced through bodily changes they don't want and after how that has fucked my quality of life for good I'm not prepared to just sit back and let it happen to another generation. Mine was supposed to be the last to suffer through this shit.

            I have a similar view on the risk tbh. If it even helps one trans person get hrt instead of going through the UK's absolutely evil GIC system then it's worth it

    Chelsea Poe Is a bitch, why should we sacrifice trans kids here because some random black American women want money.

    Americans are incredibly self centred

    Stop being fucking weird. DIY should be a thing that if you know you know or else trans people will yet again get fucked for it, with moral outrage leading to better customs/worse climate for trannies.

    You can say what you will, but did. will sound insane to cis normies and probably a lot of the lgb normies if we are real. I can already see a terf lesbian going to Twitter to tweet about how trannies are grooming children into buying illegal drugs online in order to inject like some kind of heroin. Why be such a massive homosexual retard?

    itt robin makes estrogen a controlled substance in the u.k.

    (took a lot of restraint to not post the noose gif tbh, you know the one)

      You people say this every time I do this and every time it doesn't happen and everyone ignores that part
      none of you complain about how dire things are for us if you're gonna do precisely nothing to elevate other trans peoples' quality of life

        you can point people in the right direction without exposing sources, (even give sources via word of mouth) all it takes is one terf on twitter to go on a moral crusade tbh. I know we are in dire straits right now and that is *exactly* why we need to exercise more caution when it comes to grey market shit entering the public eye. do you want another qhi situation?

        also srry but i ran out of restraint 🙁

          kek that's a deep cut, I had to stop doing that the past year or so even when I'm at my most depressed because I'm paranoid the pressure's been making the laxity of the skin on my jaw/neck worse

          congrats, not everybody is so lucky as to stumble across that stuff, and I was too scared to search even basic words to do with what I was feeling because my psycho dad always went through our internet history and stuff and I didn't know you could delete it at that age

          also QHI got busted because they were shipping from within the UK while pretending they were based abroad, not because they were selling tranny meds
          other tabloid articles have been run on muh teens can buy troon meds in the past 5 years and nothing's been done about it because they can't check every package coming onto the island without slowing up the all-important economy, especially with how fucked our supply chains are atm - even if they did make it controlled it'd get through customs as often as drugs get through i.e. near-ubiquitously

            yeah and there are some new suppliers within the uk that shouldn't be fucked over either. also, can you really not see how making E a controlled substance would make things much worse?

            • 3 weeks ago
              Anonymous

              E probably won’t become a controlled substance because of Women’s HRT and the autistic screeching TERFs would make when they have to deal with even more shortages. I hope. Really needs to remain unrestricted tbh
