Self-injection Guide for FTMs

Taking Care of Business: A DIY Guide to Self Injecting ‘T’ is an exciting and innovative one of a kind health teaching resource made by and for the trans communities. To date it has been well received by both the trans communities and health care providers. At Sherbourne Health Centre we regularly provide copies of the video to trans folks (including some trans women) who will be self-injecting hormones for the first time. It has also been an effective resource for friends/partners/lovers who administer hormone injections to people at home.

The DVD features a chapter selection menu so that individuals can easily review specific sections as well as a PDF injection guide. Although I am able to pass around copies of the DVD free of charge to individuals who need them and stop by the health centre, I am not always able to mail out copies to individuals that request them.

Due to popular demand, or rather geographically diverse needs, I have now posted Taking Care of Business on YouTube. I unfortunately had to edit it down a bit to meet their time restrictions and for all of you who participated in the project I have also edited out most of the credits.
