Inclusive Support For Transgender And Non-Binary People With Endometriosis With Cori Smith
This EndoLife Podcast
Season 3 Episode 21
In this episode I’m talking to Cori Smith about his experience of endometriosis as a trans man and how we can make the endometriosis community a safer, more supportive place for transgender and non-binary people and others who do not identify as cisfemale with endometriosis.
Cori is currently launching a lawsuit against medical institute in New York for discrimination based on his gender status. Cori has endometriosis and his story of how he was treated as a women vs how he was treated as a trans man is shocking, but so important to talk about and raise awareness of. Trigger warning: Cori went through some traumatic medical procedures and abuse from medical professionals, so if you’re sensitive to those kind of subjects you may want to forward those moments.
I speak to Cori about the ways in which transgender and non-binary people are treated with endometriosis, why he decided to be brave and sue the medical institute and how we can make our support services and community more inclusive.
Cori is doing incredible and courageous work for our community. In the show notes below, I’ve listed the ways you can help Cori on his mission.
