ThemsHealth was started in May 2019 by Nina Kossoff (they/she). The idea was born of a need for health and wellness information beyond the traditional "men's" and "women's" binary. Since then, ThemsHealth has become an Instagram-centric resource of information on bodily health, mental health, sexuality, fitness, nutrition, identity, community, and social justice, by and for the community. The page offers suggestions, advice, methods, affirmations, ways of thinking, practices, and broadly information for nonbinary and trans folks to see themselves in.
Championing community expertise, ThemsHealth has built in a network of #themfessionals (nonbinary, trans, queer professionals in the health and wellness spaces) who volunteer their time to answer anonymous questions directly from the community, based on their experience as nurse practitioners, therapists, nutritionists, trainers, and more.
ThemsHealth is presently an unpaid labor of love, run as a side-project outside other paid work. ThemsHealth has had the pleasure of joining panels and conversations discussing trans and nonbinary health & wellness with professionals and community leaders across the space.
ThemsHealth is based on unceded Lenni Lenape land, also known as Brooklyn, NY.
