Trans in the South: A Guide to Resources and Services, is a directory of more than 400 Southern health service providers that the Campaign for Southern Equality team has confirmed to be trans-friendly and trans-competent.
Available in both English and Spanish, you’ll find lists of trans-friendly mental health providers, primary care physicians, HIV care specialists, attorneys, endocrinologists, and more across 13 Southern states. The guide also includes resources to assist with funding medical transition, and helpful information about insurance coverage. We hope this resource guide helps people access the services they need to survive and to thrive.
We’re grateful to the many providers and agencies listed in this guide and to partner groups in the South and nationally that also put out resource guides. We’ve done our best to curate this updated guide to be as thorough and accurate as possible about trans-friendly services across the South.

ICD-10 Insurance Codes for Transgender Health Care
Time and again we hear from people who have been denied coverage of care related to their medical transition. Sometimes this is because they’re working with a doctor who doesn’t know how to code trans related care in a way to get it covered, and sometimes folks aren’t aware that they can appeal an insurance denial.
This Insurance Coding fact sheet provides information about ICD-10 insurance codes and corresponding diagnoses and treatments the codes are related to. This information can help inform medical providers about insurance codes for trans healthcare that are commonly accepted and rejected. This document is intended to assist trans people in advocating for themselves with their healthcare providers and insurance companies.
Name & Gender Change Guidelines:
The name & gender change process is one that is particularly important to members of the trans community. These legal resources can help you navigate your name and gender change.
Laws dictate how these processes take shape in each jurisdiction; therefore, processes do not look the same across jurisdictions. They are also subject to change. On each “tool” page you will find a date that notes when the page was last updated. To ensure the process has not changed since that date, it is best to contact a local attorney.
