If you have decided hormone therapy is the next step for your gender transition, then this is where that part of your journey can begin. We are Mississippi's first and only transgender specialty clinic! Founded in 2019, we are queer owned/operated. Not just a clinic, but also a collaborative mission for the trans community of our home state of Mississippi. Live Your Truth!
Cost is usually a huge barrier for hormone therapy (and healthcare in general). And since most health insurance coverage doesn't yet reliably cover gender care, we solved the issue by instead offering a transparent fee system of $35/month to cover your visits through the year.
*Medications & Labs Are Separate Costs Discussed Elsewhere*
Hormone Therapy On Your Terms
No mental health letters, no gatekeeping. Informed consent means that you are educated on the risks/benefits of the process and decide for yourself if hormone therapy is the right step for you.
*We serve the Mississippi area, but also can offer Estrogen therapy to the states of AZ, NM, and FL.
How To Get Started?
Click on the menu tab labeled "Appointments" and get started selecting your appt type and date/time. Then answer a few questions about yourself and your goals. In-Office and Telemedicine Video Chat visits are available depending on your needs.
Dosing/Regimens That Fit Your Goals
Whether you are desiring of full masculinization or feminization, or perhaps somewhere more neutral/agender/nonbinary/etc., we will work with you and tailor your medication to your physical goals.
What Do Labs & Medications Cost?
If you are covered by health insurance, there is a chance that you may have these covered to at least some degree by your policy. But if not, most hormone medications are fairly reasonably priced in the pharmacy, especially when using discount apps such as GoodRx. Average is $10-$40 per month, depending on type of medicine.
We also have discount options for labs through Labcorp/Quest lab locations that average $70-$150 per panel/draw (price depends on what type of hormones you are on and where you are at in your treatment regimen).
Where Are We?
Our physical office is located at 709 Hardy Street in Hattiesburg, MS. It also serves as a trans safe space for trans centered events and as a place available to stop by and hang out during in-office hours.
Who Are We?
Stacie & Lee Pace are your healthcare provider team. The lack of trans care options in Mississippi pissed them off, so they did something about it.
Why? They don't need a reason to do the right thing. That's something you just do. Trans rights are human rights.

How Can You Help This Community?
Marsha's Tea Room is the nonprofit partner of Spectrum. It is a 501(c)3 tax exempt entity whose mission is to improve the health and welfare of the transgender community through healthcare and education. It seeks to carry on the fighting spirit of Marsha P Johnson's fiery activism for LGBTQ+ rights at the Stonewall riots and beyond. Marsha's shares office space in our clinic and uses that space for trans centered projects as well as functioning as a trans safe space where people can come hang out in safety, be themselves, and not have to worry who is watching them go to the restroom. If you know anyone who would like to donate and help further their initiatives, please direct them to their website: www.MarshasTeaRoom.org
