FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1) Can “admirers” or “chasers” attend the events and groups?

Absolutely not. Please do not attend our groups and events if your motive is to find a sex partner. Do not embarrass yourself by making us kick you out of groups and events.

2) Can partners, parents, etc attend any of the groups?

They can attend some. IN.Formation (see calendar for meeting times) is designed for trans people and their parents/spouses/allies. It is also a very good place to start if you are beginning your transition process. We also offer a group specifically for non-trans family members, partners, and allies. See calendar for details.

3) Can cis-men and people who identify as female attend Be Free (the trans-male group)?

No. Be Free is a group specifically for transgender men, at any stage of transition (including pre-transition). The group serves to give trans men a safe space to discuss sensitive topics such as health and sexuality. Thank you for respecting our space.

COMMUNITY STANDARDS
The community leaders work hard to ensure that transgender individuals and our allies have safe and nurturing places to meet. Anyone who makes sexual references on the online discussion board will be removed from the group and blocked. Anyone, regardless of gender identity or previous involvement in our community, who makes lewd or sexual comments and/or gestures or who is seen "flashing" others at meetings and events will be removed, suspended, or banned at the discretion of the group facilitator.
