The TransFamily support group meets the
Second Saturday of every month 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM.
TransFamily was founded by Karen and Bob Gross in May 1995 as a result of their efforts to find a support system to help them deal with their own child's transition.
TransFamily provides support, education, advocacy, and outreach for the transgender community, families, friends, partners, and allies of all ages, through meetings, presentations, seminars, media outreach, and an emergency resource hotline.
We do have other activities periodically. To find other information you can browse the TransFamily web site at www.transfamily.org or call the Helpline at (216) 691-HELP (4357). TransFamily also offers a number of online, e-mail based discussion groups as well.
TransFamily has highly skilled professional speakers to present on transgender issues. Whether it is for social service agencies, medical professionals, colleges, conferences, teachers, or politicians, one will walk away with a better understanding of the transgender community and the issues that affect them. Topics that are covered include, but are not limited to, definitions and terms, legal, medical, social, myths and stereotypes, and the differences between sex and gender and what that means.
The GenderQueer discussion group meets every Thursday at The Center from 5:30 - 6:30 PM. This group is led by community members and is open to all non-binary folks. MTF, FTM, Bi-gender, A-gender, GenderQueer, Gender-Fluid, etc. For more information, contact Maya Simek at MSimek@lgbtcleveland.org or at (216) 651-5428 x 113.
