The Bay Area Reporter: #TransHealthFail

Trans man endures fraught process for surgery

"Trans man endures fraught process for surgery," is the story of an Oakland man, Eliot Daughtry, who transitioned from female to male 23 yrs ago. 8 years ago, Daughtry started requesting a hysterectomy for medical reasons. After being denied by three different insurance agencies, I picked up the story in the middle of September and started reporting on Daughtry's long and traumatic journey.

The 4,300 word feature article was published on the front page of The Bay Area Reporter on December 17, 2015 and online at ebar.com. For this article, I wrote the profile and shot the images.
