Resources for FAAB, Non-Male Identified People Who Want Top Surgery
This is a compilation of resources for female-assigned-at-birth (FAAB), non-male identified people who want top surgery. This document will include a list of surgeons who are willing to perform top surgery on genderqueer/non-male-identified people, as well as a list of blogs of people who want top surgery or have had top surgery but are not male-identified.
This information has been collected from a variety of sources. If there is something you see that needs to be added or corrected, please let me know. I want to make this list as comprehensive as possible!
The re-bloggable, Tumblr version can be found here. Please reblog it if you have a Tumblr – – I want this information to reach as many people as possible.
