Places to Get Tested

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.

Additional info: The herpes test is just an exam if you have visible symptoms, not a blood test.

Notes: We have always heard good things about the testing staff at Dallas County, and have worked with very affirming folks there, so we believe most of the time this should be considered a "trans affirming" location. Let us know if you do or do not have a good experience here. We don't know if their intake forms are as affirming as they need to be, so if they aren't asking for information they need to know about you or are asking for it in a way that is not affirming, cross it out and write in your own! It's your information, and you should control how you are comfortable providing it!

If their paperwork does not ask for information in a way that is meaningful to you and your trans identity, be sure to mark changes that will let them know what language works to affirm you, your health, and your safety!

Parkland Hospital Amelia Court HIV/AIDS Clinic

Additional info: Must be HIV/AIDS patient for STD testing; must bring photo ID and proof of income and address; walk-in HIV testing available but not always staffed.

Notes: The staff at Amelia Court are very trans affirming and work well with the community. Other Parkland clinics also offer HIV/STD testing, but our experience indicates medical staff are sometimes "uncomfortable" working with trans persons and may exhibit microaggessions that contribute to undermining trans identities. We recommend trans persons test at Amelia Court if possible. Regardless of location, the paperwork that we have seen is binary-gender based, so if your selections are not listed, write in your own!

Notes: The UTSW CPIU staff are very trans friendly and affirming, and work to accommodate everyone, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. However, we know that many healthcare forms and paperwork can be problematic for trans persons. If their paperwork does not ask for information in a way that is meaningful to you and your trans identity, be sure to let them know and mark changes to show what language works to affirm you, your health, and your safety! We feel the staff will want your input.

Notes: This facility is primarily for Black cisgender MSM, but they are friendly and affirming to the trans community. Trans men should be comfortable here, but as this program specifically targets men, trans women may not be comfortable. They likely have the same very binary-based intake form used at the Nelson-Tebedo Clinic, so remember that if you don't feel they are asking for your identity and information in the right way, you have the right to cross out their limited selections and write your own!

The will benefit from your information, and you will advocate for the community.

We are only including this location because we don't know for sure if other Planned Parenthood locations have had training (but we are happy to update this and invite comment from folks who have visited the other facilities). Some men may be uncomfortable accessing services here because for many persons, Planned Parenthood is strongly associated with women's services. If you need someone to accompany you to this location, please feel free to contact us and we will try to arrange for someone to go with you.

Notes: We have discussed services with administrators at Los Barrios Unidos, and they seemed interested in becoming a trans-affirming provider. However, all our contacts have now left. Our one experience accompanying a client on a physician visit was very disappointing. The front staff were friendly, but the medical staff for this visit were not. Be aware that if you seek services here, some staff may not be trans affirming. As elsewhere, if their forms and information do not ask for information in a way that is meaningful to you as a trans person, be sure to feel you can cross out their wording and correct it to your own! It is your health and your information, you have a right to define what is appropriate!
