In medicine, psychology and care, trans people are marginalised. Gender diversity is often considered together with sexual diversity – but this obscures the lived experience of trans people. The volume “Trans & Care. Trans Personen zwischen Selbstsorge, Fürsorge und Versorgung” (2019, ed. Max Appenroth / María do Mar Castro Varela) is therefore the first to address not only the current situation of trans people in various care systems, but also the concept of “self-care”. It is intended to pave the way for options for action that lead to improved nursing, medical, therapeutic and social care for trans people.



Max Appenroth is a Cologne-based trans activist, author, public speaker and is about to complete his doctorate at the Institute of Public Health at Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Max has made it his mission to educate people about the beauty of social diversity. With his own company “Diversity Factory”, he and his team offer counselling, training and coaching on the topic of diversity and social sustainability. Max also talks on social media on various platforms about the beautiful facets of diversity and the benefits of an in-depth examination of it.


The event taks place in the frame of the exhibition Wandlung & Scherben by Jay Ritchie.
