This group is for undergraduate and graduate students who identify as transgender and are questioning or in the process of a gender transition. This group will provide a safe and affirming space to build community, share stories, learn strategies, process challenging experiences, and celebrate identity and resiliency. Topics include but are not limited to: social and legal aspects of gender transition, coming out to family and friends, finding support, educating allies, medical interventions, maintaining physical and mental health, safety, navigating sex and relationships, shifts in sexual orientation, coming out in college/internships/job settings, and preparing for the future.
