LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — Lacking health insurance, many transgender people resort to an underground but commonplace practice of having silicone illegally injected into their bodies — a low cost procedure with a high risk of adverse health consequences, including death. With surgical reassignment surgeries approaching $70,000 and up, many have opted for silicone pumpers with tragic results.
Pauline Park of Queens Pride House, a LGBT center states: “Pumpers are preying on desperate people . . . They’re basically killing people and profiting from it.” In New York City, 1 out of every 5 transgender women have been injected with silicone.
I urge everyone to be aware of the ugly health consequences of using illegal silicone pumpers.
