WELCOME!

We are glad you found the Southern Arizona Gender Alliance!

SAGA is a non-profit organization that supports and advocates for southern Arizona’s community of trans identities: transsexual, transgender, genderqueer, masculine of center, feminine of center, non-binary, two-spirit, butch, femme, gender fluid, intersex, and ALL of us who are gender fabulous!

SAGA envisions a society in which transgender, non-binary, and gender-creative people are ensured of their basic rights and can be open, honest and safe at home and in the community. We provide support groups, advocacy, community education, and training for businesses, service providers, and community members on how our allies can be supportive and inclusive.

In spite of the advocacy of many professional organizations, transgender patients are routinely denied treatment for the diagnosis of GID by both public and private insurance.

While insurance carriers often deny claims based on GID, they may approve requests for related treatment.  This document, which you can download by clicking here,  illustrates guidelines for obtaining medically necessary services for related issues.
