Who We Are
TransNewYork’s mission is to bring awareness to the issues facing the transgender non-conforming (TGNC) community and give guidance and support to individuals and their loved ones within an open and safe environment. We provide individual and group counseling and monthly meetings, in which we address issues such as gender dysphoria and encourage transgender individuals to share their stories. We wish to be an informative source for transgender resources, activities, and events.
TransNewYork works with allies of the transgender community, as well as offers educational training for organizations that provide an array of services to help maintain and expand diversity within them. Our presence has spread to local businesses and educational institutions, to whom we have provided guest speakers and other resource materials. We have helped raise public awareness on transgender issues through hosting and sponsoring speaking engagements, featuring prominent transgender leaders and organizations.
TransNewYork also organizes and hosts outings and events for the transgender community. We are currently planning New York Coming Out, the first ever educational transgender conference in Manhattan, New York. We anticipate our 2020 conference to have over 500 attendees!
