Trans BPOC European Network
Who we are
Trans United Europe/ Trans European BPOC network has been founded to unite the networks of European operating Trans BPOC NGOs and individual BPOC trans activists living and working in Europe. We started in 2013 in the Netherlands with Trans United Nederland from which we formatted in Brussels the umbrella BPOC network Trans United Europe. Trans United Nederland is the Dutch department operating from the Red Light District in the heart of Amsterdam. We amplify European and global BPOC media content via social media, inform BPOC trans communities on trans sex work, gender-specific healthcare including HIV prevention programs for transmen and non-binary people. We are a BPOC sex worker and BPOC trans people living with HIV led organization.
Trans United Nederland
As an organization, we strive for the empowerment of the BPOC trans community at a local, national, and international level. Below you can check our local projects in our Dutch sister branch.
The Trans United Clinic started by Trans United Nederland and Elagabalus by Dr. Adrie Van Diemen, supported by COC Nederland and with help of Gemeente Amsterdam.
In 2021 starting from Januari we shall collaborate with the doctors of the GGD Amsterdam. We add to our list of services 1) Blood testing 2) STD and HIV Blood testing 3) Pep and Prep therapy acces 4)Direct links with hospitals and the gender clinic in Amsterdam . Depathologization of gender specific care and sexual healthcare of trans people are the main motivations why our Director Dinah de Riquet-Bons founded the clinic over 3 years ago. Pep and Prep access to trans women/men/non binary people is not everywhere included in the strategy to end HIV and Aids, therefore trans people are still in a risky zone in the HIV and Aids prevention responses worldwide. Our clinic is together with Acceptes T in Paris and the London Q clinic a leader in trans HIV inclusive and holistic gender specific care. We are very proud and happy to announce that from 2021 our clinic is not only the place to be for hormons it’s as well appointed to provide STD and HIV care for the trans community. We center our BPOC trans people as well refugees firstly in our work. Access to doctors and HIV prevention care free of charge to them is vital to us. We nevertheless offer our help as well to all others.
We are not sick we simply need medical and sometimes other help such as psychological, psychiatric, social work care or help.
Our methods of working :
We follow ICD 11 protocols/guideliness by World Health Organisation on Gender incongruence.
We work holistic and provide prescriptions for hormone therapy. We provide STD and HIV tests and care and cooperate with hospitals to ensure direct possibilties for redirections for start up therapies.
We redirect to P&G292 with whom we work very closely, GGD Amsterdam and all mayor hospitals and HIV clinicians where you can have check-ups, we redirect towards housing and homelessness aid through our partner Hvo-Querido and P&G292, lawyers can be appointed as well by us.
Consultations are with Dr. Camiel Welling. It is possible to get a self-paid prescription that you can use at your regular pharmacies. Sherry Jae Ebere and Sunny Jansen are doctor’s assistant and first point of contact, Alejandra Ortiz is your host and migrant sexworkers coordinator. Dinah Bons is the director of the clinic. Here you will shape your treatment together with us, we will make a treatment plan that the doctor follows during your visits.
In case of issues of payment, we can try to organize things with Trans United Europe. All medical contacts are done by GGD Doctors, as well contact with your GP can start from here. All kind of questions in a private one on one doctor’s appointment can be answered during your appointments.
