This anthology on health care for queer and transgender people is as much an archive of experience as it is a call to action ... It's a must-read for health care professionals and students going into the field, those navigating the system or supporting others through it, and anyone interested in honest, informed writing on the subject. --Publishers Weekly

I loved reading The Remedy - what a wonderful compilation of diverse voices! This anthology demonstrates just how important it is for queer and trans people to tell their stories, and for the health care community to listen. --Laura Erickson-Schroth, MD, and editor of Trans Bodies, Trans Selves

The Remedy provides a rich tapestry of narratives across the spectrum of human sexuality and includes descriptions of innovations from committed health professionals who address the many gaps in providing attuned, informed care to queer and trans people. --Allan Peterkin, MD, and co-author of Caring for Lesbian and Gay People: A Clinical Guide

The Remedy is a bandage lovingly placed on the open wounds of every LGBTQAI person afraid of going to a doctor. This book does not just ask doctors to follow the oath of 'first do no harm'; it also demands medical practitioners respect, understand, and affirm our queer lives, bodies, and families. The Remedy is the collection of healing and solidarity queers desperately need. --Sassafras Lowrey, author of Lost Boi
