The 217 Boxes of Dr. Anonymous: Remembering Dr. John Fryer

1:00pm to 4:00pm
Room 1A12, First Level, Javits Center

1972 Dr. John Fryer stood before a group of psychiatrists at the APA meeting in Dallas, Texas and pronounced “I am a psychiatrist. I am a homosexual.”  This revolutionary statement paved the way for the removal of homosexuality from the DSM in 1973. 217 Boxes of Dr.Henry Anonymous is a play by Ain Gordon based on the personal effects of Dr. Fryer, which are stored at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.  By presenting excerpts of the play as well materials from Dr. Fryer’s 217 Boxes we aim to educate audience members about the context in which Dr. Fryer stood before his colleagues to fight for civil rights. 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the AGLP, which formed as an allied organization of the APA once the DSM had been amended. Following the above presentation we will interview key members of the AGLP who participated in the founding of one of the first LGBT professional organizations in the country.  

We will then interview important participants in the current fight against conversion therapy for LGBTQ folks.   In conducting the interviews, special attention will be paid to current events impacting the LGBTQ community such as milestones like the end of “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” and the supreme court decision in support of gay marriage. We will examine stressors facing the LGBTQ community such as the Orlando shooting and the continued fight against “religious freedom” bills and “bathroom” bills that threaten to roll back gains in rights and equality for LGBTQ people.

Chair: Sarah C. Noble, D.O.

Floor Sky Lobby, 16th Floor, New York Marriott Marquis

The most recent studies demonstrate that as many as 1 in 130 kids will identify as transgender, and unfortunately research suggests that many of these children will face intense stigma, bias and discrimination across multiple contexts, leading to increased rates of depression, anxiety and suicide attempts as compared to the general population.In this talk, we will discuss the various ways gender dysphoria can present in childhood and adolescent in the context of universal gender and sexual developmental tasks. We will discuss when and if to refer for specialty care, how to find resources in your community, and how to help support parents through the potential gender transition of their child.

Presenter: Aron Janssen, MD, Associate Professor, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Hassenfeld Children's Hospital at NYU Langone
