======Gender Journeys (8 Week Outline)======

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.
