The World Professional Association for Transgender Health
Formerly called Harry Benjamin International Gender Dysphoria Association, this is the professional organization that produces the WPATH Standards of Care- the most widely followed protocols for gender reassignment. These are guidelines, and while many medical and mental health care providers may cite them or choose to follow them closely, they are not laws.

Transgender Clinic of Tom Waddell Health Care
A great resource for folks in San Francisco, CA. Their Protocols for Hormonal Reassignment of Gender (.pdf) may be helpful to other service providers involved with transition related care. They are more lenient and client-centered than the WPATH Standards of Care.

Probably the most complete resource of it's kind. I wish it had been available to my doctors when I was beginning my medical transition.
