Thankfully, there are many resources available to people who are Transgender* throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. However, there is relatively little support is in place for partners--and ex-partners--of people who are transgender or gender variant.
The purpose of this group is to provide an environment of mutual support for partners of Trans people who might feel left behind or in some way require emotional support--just as Trans folks do! Partners have genders, too and we are here for you.
Let's get together at a coffee shop and hang out, meet at events throughout the Bay Area, and be a source of support and friendship for one another.
We are open to all genders and identities. In the interest of maintaining a separate space where partners of Trans people can feel comfortable sharing and processing feelings about what it is like to be in a relationship with a Trans person, the group is open to those who are or have been in a relationship with someone who is or may be Trans.
You also agree to respect the confidentiality of other members.
