Dear WPATH Members

As many of you know, a report was released last night entitled The WPATH Files, in response, our President, Dr. Marci Bowers, has issued the following statement:

Statement from Marci Bowers, M.D., president of WPATH:

"WPATH is and has always been a science- and evidence-based organization whose recommendations are widely endorsed by major medical organizations around the world. We are the professionals who best know the medical needs of trans and gender diverse individuals—and stand opposed to individuals who misrepresent and de-legitimize the diverse identities and complex needs of this population through scare tactics. The world is not flat. Gender, like genitalia, is represented by diversity. The small percentage of the population that is trans or gender diverse deserves healthcare and will never be a threat to the global gender binary."

This is and will continue to be our response to any media outreach.

If any of you receive inquiries from the media, we request that you do not respond, send the request to us at greenjay@PROTECTED,  and our media partners will respond with the statement above.

Blaine Vella

WPATH Executive Director
