William J. Malone vs. transgender people

William J. Malone is an American endocrinologist and anti-transgender activist. Malone is active in various “gender critical” organizations, including:

  • Society for Evidence-Based Gender Medicine (SEGM)
  • ReThink Identity Medicine Ethics (ReIME)


William J. “Will” Malone was born in July 1977. Malone earned a medical degree from NYU Grossman School of Medicine in 2003. After completing a residency in internal medicine at University of Southern California/LACUSC Medical Center in 2006, Malone completed a fellowship in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism in 2008.

Malone practices medicine in Idaho and is affiliated with St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center. Malone has been licensed in New York, California, and Idaho.


Malone is critical of current medical consensus about trans healthcare for minors:

Dr. William Malone, an adolescent and adult endocrinologist from Twin Falls, said he wasn’t taking a position for or against the bill, but spoke critically of the prescribing of hormones to children for gender issues. Malone acknowledged that national physician organizations support the treatments in question, but he said those societies, including the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics, have been “ideologically captured.”
