The article investigates the role of conventional news media in framing the 2012 sanctions against medical professionals who provided gender-confirming treatment to transgender people outside the purview of the state-funded and licensed Sexological Clinic in Copenhagen. This framing is contrasted with transgender people’s use of social media – Facebook in particular – as a forum for responding to the media coverage. This article raises the following questions: How do Denmark’s established news media represent and frame the 2012 case? How do transgender people engage with this news coverage – sharing articles, commenting, and discussing new developments – on Facebook? How do they use Facebook as a platform for sharing information within the trans community and articulating concerns about the case and its broader implications?
