Meanwhile the DSM 5 Work Group on Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders of the American Psychiatric Association published the proposed changes for the diagnosis and the revised criteria on their website. On behalf of the Board Members of WPATH, the authors formulated a response to the proposed DSM5 criteria for Gender Incongruence and Transvestic Disorder, based on the recommendations from the consensus statement for revision of these DSM diagnoses. This response contains agreements as well as points of critique and focuses on name, diagnostic criteria, exclusion criteria, specifiers and location of the diagnoses within DSM.
