Gender Journeys (8 Week Outline)


Introduction

The Gender Journeys 8 week program provides reliable information and meaningful community connection for anyone thinking about their own gender changes. It promotes respect for a wide range of possibilities across the diverse gender continuum.

Program Goal

To provide information and support needed to make informed decisions about an individual’s personal gender journey and possible transitioning process.

Our anti-oppressive, non-pathologizing, affirmative and respectful stance provides a positive environment for exploring and discussing this very personal aspect of ourselves. Our intent is to foster a proud community and both heal from and organize against the oppression to which we may be subject.
