Dear Meredith, 
I have a few concerns regarding this email and are as follows; 
This person is only 17 years old. Is there a legal age for consent on this type
of procedure? 
My extensive experience as a Mental Health Worker raises huge concerns regarding
this persons mental and emotional maturity to make such a decision. This
communication indicates to me that they really are still in two minds ie: wanting
a gender change but also wanting to save sperm.  
Yes it is a very expensive exercise and whilst I do not question their right to
do so, I would doubt public funding would be available for such an exercise.

Subject:	[YouthGAS_Exchange] transgender issues and funding 
Hi there youthgassers, 
Was hoping someone might have suggestions for me.  I am working with a young
person who is wanting to transition from male to female.  She is 17 and is
wanting to save sperm before she starts taking hormones.  We have contacted a
fertility clinic and they charge $100 per sample (and multiple samples might need
to be taken to ensure viable sperm is frozen) and then $273 a year to keep the
swimmers frozen! 
These costs are a little unachievable to a young person on youth allowance! 
Does anyone have any idea, no matter how remote, of funding possibilities for the
actual deposit?  It is possible for her to pay off the storage costs throughout
the year. 
She lives in north west Tasmania. 
Hope someone can come up with some suggestions!
