We are currently working very hard to secure long-term solution to make visits available immediately but for now we are unable to handle all requests. We know how horrible it is to wait! Currently, we still have 240 slots available for Q1 2024. Please leave us your details. We will contact you soon!
Unlike great majority of public healthcare systems in the EU, we respect human rights and dignity of our patients.
Our treatment is fully based on contemporary scientific knowledge, which means we adopt Informed Consent Standard.
We grant the life-changing and life-saving treatment during one 4-hours visit, not in 4 years.
Our goal is to leave nobody behind and build self-sustainable solution for future victims of trans-hostile discriminatory laws and practices.

The reasons why people support Imago vary greatly. My own reasons are varied, too. I am going to be fully transparent on why & how. You may not care about some of my reasons – but find others to be important or dear to you.
At least 5 millions of transgender and non-binary individuals are being refused life-saving therapy by the EU health-care systems which instead offer procedures that are anachronistic and harmful, contrary to contemporary scientific medical knowledge, and violating human rights. Even such self-proclaimed as LGBT-friendly countries as The Netherlands put trans people through dehumanizing and humiliating process of waiting years (and suffer torture of gender dysphoria) for an external committee to pass the verdict whether the individual is allowed to be the gender they say they are (which is a great step forward, considering that just 10 years ago the Dutch system forced sterilization on transitioning individuals). It is worth noting, the monstrous waiting lines are artificially created and purposefully sustained.
When researching the project for the past year, consulting numerous NGOs, foundations, and other trans-supporting organizations I made depressing discovery: charities are horribly ineffective. It is very saddening as hardly ever one can meet so many dedicated and passionate people who sacrifice a lot for the cause. Yet, the organizations are chronically underfunded and understaffed. Most of the people onboard are volunteers. The conviction that doing good deserves no material reward contrasted with the fact that supervillain-corporations reward generously for committing evil results in many top-class experts be sucked by the dark side. I am not here to condemn their choice, many hate giving up on their values and dreams. Many would love to engage in noble venture if it would not mean risking bankruptcy, homelessness, or starvation for them and their loved ones.
Another unpleasant truth I "should not speak openly" is: the amounts of human compassion are finite but the amounts of suffering, hurt, and injustice competing for it seems infinite. Many activists burn out quickly when they see their work is like trying to extinguish chainfire with watering pot. People get desensitized over time, indifferent, and it is hard to blame them for adopting self-protective mechanism. For that reason, it became obvious for me the only valid approach is a self-sustainable solution that needs only one huge or two medium boosts of funding.
