The APA DSM-5 Task Force has posted draft diagnostic criteria for public review and comment through April 20, 2010. Please follow the links at right for responses by this group to the proposed diagnostic categories of Gender Incongruence and Transvestic Disorder for gender variant children, adolescents and adults.

We encourage mental health professionals to review the draft DSM language and our responses and deliver your own comments to the DSM-5 Task Force by going to the dsm5.org web site, login (create a user ID) and make comments before the April 20th deadline.
