Trans teens applying for hormone treatment on the increase


The sharp rise has been attributed to greater trans awareness and trans youth coming out at an earlier age.

THE rate of trans teenagers applying to the Family Court for permission to start hormone treatment in Australia has increased by 360 per cent since 2013.

Under current Australian requirements, young trans and gender diverse people seeking stage-two hormone treatment for transition must apply to the court, a lengthy and costly process.
