Beware The 10 Percent Club

People who are new to the transgender community should be aware of the 10 Percent Club.

The 10 Percent Club is a colloquial term used to describe the personal networks that provide help with Medical Tourism based on "some kind of opaque commission like arrangements" i.e. for a financial gain. Not everyone supports the community in an altruistic paradigm.

We have heard a number of sorry stories involving ladies having the demand to pay more money, being kicked out of hotels and friendships ruined. We think if surgery options cannot occur in Australia, then it is important to do your own research and talk to as many of your friends as you can for decision making support.

As with all things online, do not allow your excitement and emotions to get you carried away on someone else's plan. Be aware of Stranger Danger Online. People can sound very nice but there are a lot of predators who pretend to be vulnerable or victims in order to locate the next target for scamming.

Always make sure you travel with a known and trusted support person who you know will act in your best interests in an emergency. One who won't steal your shit and leave you stranded.
