GIBLIB and Caitlyn Jenner Collaborate to Raise Awareness of Transgender Healthcare Issues for Pride Month

GIBLIB Launches Educational Video Series to Improve Transgender Patient Care; Shares Gender Reassignment Surgeries and Medical Talks on Gender Dysphoria from Top Medical Experts

LOS ANGELES--()--GIBLIB, the streaming media platform offering the largest library of on-demand medical lectures and surgical videos in 4K and 360-degree virtual reality, today launched a new educational series on transgender healthcare topics in recognition of Pride Month. The ongoing series provides the medical community in-depth knowledge on transgender medical issues and offers physicians worldwide access to learn directly from subject matter experts. To kick-off the series, GIBLIB collaborated with Caitlyn Jenner, an American television personality, retired Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete and transgender activist, to share her personal experience transitioning and insights into how doctors can better serve the medical needs of the transgender community.

The video series is narrated by experts from the top medical centers that provide specialized care for the transgender community. According to a 2017 survey, 31 percent of the U.S. transgender community have no regular doctor or form of healthcare – partially out of fear of discrimination. Moreover, LGBTQ education for medical students often varies greatly, and the median time spent learning about LGBT health is five hours, according to a JAMA study.

“Too often, members of the LGBTQ community do not have access to the same quality medical care that should be available for all patients, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation,” said Brian Conyer, CEO and Co-founder of GIBLIB. “We’re releasing this video series to the medical community to educate these professionals on the unique journey of trans people, highlight key gaps in healthcare for the trans community, and help increase the number of physicians able to provide the best medical care for this historically marginalized population.”

The transgender video series includes segments on topics ranging from hormone therapy to gender confirmation surgeries. More content on transgender topics and additional specialties will continue to be released every Tuesday on GIBLIB’s platform. The series is available to stream now with a free trial: https://giblib.com/. GIBLIB’s full-length interview with Caitlyn Jenner is also available to the public: https://watch.giblib.com/details/caitlyn.

“Medical care for trans people is one of the most critical issues out there,” said Caitlyn Jenner. “Being able to wake up every morning and feel comfortable with myself for the last four years has been both a blessing and a call to action for me. From witnessing the needs of the trans community and my personal experience transitioning, I am proud to support GIBLIB for dedicating its resources to educating medical professionals to better understand the medical needs of the trans community. I look forward to seeing more initiatives like GIBLIB’s to better support transgender people everywhere in living their most authentic lives.”
