Mission:
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.

Support Groups

We celebrate the value of community.

We understand how important it is to connect with families and youth who may share your experience, or 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.

Groups are a great way to meet new friends, socialize in a safe place, discuss topics unique to your experience, and find support. We will 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.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to the weather, we have cancelled groups for Saturday, Jan.6th. We are looking forward to seeing everyone on the 21st!
