Trans Groups

Dealing with transition – whether it is your own or someone else’s – can be one of the most challenging events in one’s life. Having the support of others who can share their own experience is indispensable.

Transgender Foundation of America provides direct support to the following groups so that they may better carry out their mission of being there for one another.

Below is a list of the support groups. For more information about starting a group or existing groups, call 713-520-8586. Group attendance is free; there are no dues or fees for group membership.


NOTE: As TFA makes the move to the new TG Center location, groups will be in a state of flux. Noted times and meeting locations may be inaccurate until the move is complete. Check the Calendar of Events for up-to-date meeting times.

If this is your first time attending, you are encouraged to check with the contact person before attending to make sure of any changes.
