Event-specific Details

Case based presentation:

The first case, we introduce a 17-year-old male who presents with urethral discharge. When you take a private history, he admits that he’s been having sex with both boys and girls.

The second case, is a 12-year-old assigned female at birth who identifies as a male and asks that male pronouns be used along with a typically male name. He dresses as a boy, and has his hair cut in a typically male style. His parents thought that he would outgrow this, but instead he is becoming more insistent.
