TransActive Gender Center provides a holistic range of services and expertise to empower transgender and gender diverse children, youth and their families in living healthy lives, free of discrimination.

Gender Support Groups

Meet new friends, socialize in a safe place, discuss topics unique to your experience and find support.

We understand how important it is to connect with families and youth who may share your experience, have good advice or have stories that help you find your way. That is why we offer groups for all ages to help build a vibrant, supportive community.

We do our best to make TransActive a space where it is not only safe to be your true self, but also a safe place to ask questions, share your hopes and fears and to take the steps towards a more fulfilling, connected life.

We celebrate the value of community
