TransFamily 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.
TransFamily support group meets on the second Saturday of every month at the LGBT Center in Cleveland, Ohio from 2pm-5pm. 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 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. To have a speaker come and present on transgender issues contact us atinfo@LGBTcleveland.org for more information.
TransFamily Board members emeritus are Bob and Karen Gross.
Trans-Formers is a social and support group facilitated by a professional counselor for Gender Variant Youth between the ages of 18-30. Transformers meetings will resume soon. Check schedule and website for updates. Contact: info@LGBTcleveland.org
