Affirmation Generation: The Lies Of Transgender Medicine

A timely documentary


UPDATE 15 MAY 2023: The filmmakers have succeeded in getting their work on major streaming platforms! It’s coming to a Roku stick near you soon, so check their page for updates.

Affirmation Generation: The Lies of Transgender Medicine reveals the push to medicalize non-conforming youth, exposes the damage already done and warns of an epidemic of medical malpractice to come.

Featuring the stories of six young detransitioners (three men and three women) who sought medical help but instead were irreversibly harmed by their doctors following the one-size-fits-all “gender-affirming care” medical treatment, this film includes important commentary from several people, including my friend, therapist Stephanie Winn.


Stephanie warns that while a wave of detransitioners is coming, the therapy profession has no idea they exist or how to help them. Worse, so many detransitioners were misled into “gender medicine” by a therapist they they now distrust the entire profession!

Affirmation Generation: The Lies of Transgender Medicine is already subject to censorship efforts through a pressure campaign on Vimeo. The people who told us detransitioners don’t exist are now trying frantically to pretend they don’t matter. Therefore we present the documentary here, in full, out of solidarity, as an act of dissent against gender woo and the suppression of its victims’ voices.
