We've listed places to get tested below, and we have set the ones we know—or
have a pretty good idea—are trans friendly at the top. The sites are tagged as being
located in certain areas of Dallas; locations are general, and one site may show up in more
than one filtered area of the city.
If you are uncomfortable going to a site to get tested, contact Trans Pride and we will do our best to arrange for someone to accompany you. Please give us a few days advance notice so we can arrange it with our schedules.
We are also including prices of tests if we know them, but that is also subject to change. Some tests are free (usually HIV and syphilis are free), but others may cost. It is good to check around to get the best price. Sometimes the Dallas County Health Department can work with you on prices more than other testing organizations.
Because we want this to be a resource that guides trans and gender nonconforming persons to trans affirming places, we want to hear if you have a bad experience! You can also post your experiences in our Trans Health Forum. There is NO EXCUSE for someone to not use your preferred name and your gender pronouns. Do not accept someone trying to make you a second-class citizen because you are not. The sites that should be the best at working with the trans community can be viewed by clicking "Trans Friendly" below.
Important note: Remember, if any location does not have forms that ask for your information in an appropriate manner, write what they should ask on the intake or other forms! That means if they don't ask for your preferred name, write it in anyway! If they only ask for "sex" and don't have a sex that fits for you, write in what you want! We recommend writing in "Current gender identity" and "Gender assigned at birth" at a minimum. These are explained on the data collection page of the Center of Excellence for Transgender Health web site. Also, all these organizations receive funding under requirements that include prohibitions on discrimination against a person due to gender identity. If you feel you have been discriminated against due to your gender identity, we want to know.
