Transcript of a talk as it was given at the 2009 WPATH conference in Oslo, Norway, June 19, 2009, by Randall Ehrbar, Kelley Winters, Nicholas Gorton

http://www.gidreform.org/wpath2009/

some highlights (my words):
'gender dysphoria' as the diagnostic term; emphasis on 'dysphoria', not transness in itself as diagnosis/illness
'remission' concept: after people have successfully transitioned, the dysphoria is in remission, but ongoing treatment is (usually) required to keep 'em happy.
removes 'transvestism' and some poor/outdated language from the the DSM as pertains to gender.

Am keeping my fingers crossed, and grateful to the medical professionals (and friends) doing this work.
