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 100 % trans lead health clinic by Trans United Nederland and Elagabalus by Dr. Adrie Van Diemen, supported by COC Nederland and with help of Gemeente Amsterdam takes place location in Oudezijdsvoorburgwal 97A, in the heart of Amsterdam.
Depathologization of trans people is the main motive why our co-chair Dinah de Riquet-Bons and Adrie van Diemen founded their clinic over 2 years ago.
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 incogruency.
We work holistic and provide prescriptions for hormon therapy.
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 ordered through Proud Nederland.
Consultations are with our doctor Adrie van Diemen. It is possible to get a self-paid prescription that you can use at designated regular pharmacy. Sherry Jae Ebere is our doctor’s assistant and first point of contact, Alejandra Ortiz is your host and migrant sexworkers coordinator.
In case of issues of payment, we can try to organize things with Trans United Nederland. It is officially done by doctor Adrie van Diemen who is BIG certificated for this. She as well can arrange a letter to change your gender marker to the wished gender marker in passports. All kind of questions in a private one on one doctor’s appointment can be answered during your appointment.
We hope to see you all again at our location at the Oudezijdsvoorburgwal 97A
