Equinox is a peer led Trans and Gender Diverse & Non Binary (TGD&NB) Health Service operated by the Thorne Harbour Health, (THH), formerly VAC.  We consult regularly with the THH Trans Advisory Group and our patients to establish service needs and define priorities; and our practice reflects the outcomes of these consultations. Equinox and THH  believe that by working in partnership with the TGD&NB community  we can provide a safe environment for gender diverse clients to obtain quality medical care.

Equinox is a health and well being service for the TGD&NB community. We honour and support your informed decisions and will use your chosen name and pronouns whilst treating you with respect.  Our goal is to ensure positive health outcomes for all members of the Victorian TGD&NB community.  Our services include General Practice healthcare, sexual health, hormone initiation and management, Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), Osteopathy and Counselling.
