"Writer Sam Dylan Finch is looking for a surgeon. Finch is transgender, and his plan to undergo gender-affirming surgery has become urgent due to the GOP's progress toward repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Trump administration's hostility towards transgender people.
'My timeline kept getting pushed around because of other health problems that I was having,' Finch says. 'It wasn't concrete before the election, and further, I was willing to wait longer if it meant getting the best possible surgeon. My priority now is to get top surgery as soon as possible, even if it means choosing a less-experienced surgeon in favor of getting surgery sooner.'"
