red dotTransgender Group

The Transgender Group is a weekly discussion and support group that gathers in the library. See the calendar page for the current day and time. Facilitated by transgendered adults, this group provides a chance for youth who have questions or are exploring their gender identity, or who identify as transgendered, to get to talk with adults and other youth about their experiences, feelings, and issues. This long-standing group is one of the very few transgender youth discussion groups anywhere in the world and is one example of how Lambert House is an international leader in LGBTQ youth support.
