Transgender and Gender Diverse Services


An Affirming Space

Care for Your Gender Journey

At Outside In, we believe that everyone deserves great healthcare that understands and supports who they are, especially when it comes to gender identity. That’s why we’re committed to giving compassionate gender-affirming care to those who need it. We want to make it easier for transgender and gender diverse people to access healthcare. No matter where you are on your unique gender journey, our goal is to support you with respect and dignity.

What We Do

Here, you can expect to get the comprehensive care you need for your gender journey under one roof. Our teams are specialized in transgender and gender diverse health, and they work together right here in our primary care clinic. They can help you with things like getting referrals to surgeries or managing hormones that support your gender identity. Our providers follow the latest evidence-based guidelines from the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH).

Right now, our providers focus on gender-affirming care for adults. Our services are mainly for patients who are 15 and older. Our providers are not able to manage puberty blockers for adolescents or children. Please call or email for more information.

Success Stories


As a patient at Outside In, the dignity, compassion, and respect that I was shown by staff truly had a lasting impact on me and directly resulted in me wanting to get involved in helping my community.


Outside In made me want to be around excellence. Outside In shaped me. It taught me how to be kind to people less fortunate.


When I came out as trans and reached out to the community for help, everyone had something good to say about Outside In.


Through these connections I was able to get into school and graduate as a Certified Medical Assistant


Through Outside In’s guidance and support, I was in my own apartment completely self-sufficient within a week.


If you met me today, you might never imagine I spent countless nights sleeping under the Burnside Bridge.


I wanted independence and stability. I wanted to belong. I found Outside In.


Housing at Outside In is so much more than a roof over your head. The staff is helpful and amazing. They were always there for us anticipating our needs. Finally, we weren’t hungry anymore and we were safe.


I feel safe at Outside In. I love Outside In people. How they love us, care for us. The wonderful and fresh food, the health care, the accommodations, the hospitalities. People talking to me, listening to me. Changing lives. It is a great moment.


By the time I was 17, I didn't trust anybody...except Outside In. The staff took my concerns seriously, and took a holistic approach. They protected me.
