Transition House Association of Nova Scotia (Canada)

The Transition House Association of Nova Scotia is speaking out in support of housing transgender women in women’s shelters.  The Association’s women-only rule “encompasses all women — cisgender (whose gender matches the equipment they were born with) and transgender.”

“That is, someone born with the sexual organs of a man who believes her true gender is female and who is living as a woman, or who has had surgery,” said Pamela Harrison, the Association’s provincial coordinator.

The association has had policies to support transgender women for seven or eight years.
