What type of medicine does the provider practice?        

Trans and HIV care

Would you recommend this provider to others?              

I wouldn’t recommend Stacy Lane to anyone who is nonbinary or otherwise looking to transition in less traditional ways. I am aware that many of her patients love her, and that she has done a lot in Pittsburgh for trans women of color. That does not make her a good fit for everyone though, and I think people have the right to know that. I have never used her as a doctor due to comments she made in a newspaper interview around Caitlyn Jenner’s transition. “The Bruce to Caitlyn transition is a great benefit to the community. While it shows the visibility of someone people identify with through the (“Keeping Up with the Kardashians”) show or Olympics, more than 99 percent of transgender people don’t have the resources he has. I love that she is a good-looking woman and even people who aren’t supportive of the transgender community can’t say she is bad looking. Although you don’t know what’s been photoshopped.” I find that to be super misogynistic, and I find the implications around standards of attractiveness to make the world actively less safe for nonbinary people and trans folks who don’t want to or can’t pass.

When was your last visit with the provider          

Haven’t seen her because I find her public comments to be triggering.


What identities do you have?    

Nonbinary, transmasculine, white.
