Boulder Trans and Genderqueer Support (BTGS) offers support group meetings and social fun for people 18+ who identify as transgender and/or identify anywhere within the gender variant spectrum/sphere/torus. Our support meetings emphasize respect for peoples' experience in all types of gender variant identities, including genderqueer, third gender, trans women, trans men, trans masculine/feminine, bi-gender, genderfluid, intersex, and of course anyone questioning/deciphering their gender identity. For the safety and comfort of our group members, our meetings are not currently open to SOFFAs (significant others, family, family, friends or allies of trans and genderqueer folks). The group is consciously welcoming to gender variant people of color and persons with disabilities and we strive to build and maintain an anti-oppressive, inclusive group culture. Please come if you want support in your experience, you want to hear from others about their experience, or maybe you just want to spend time in a group of people that is accepting of you as you are.
We meet on Thursdays, 7 - 9 pm, at the Pridehouse (Out Boulder), 2132 14th Street. The meetings are facilitated by peers, and everyone will be given an opportunity to share so that no one person dominates the discussion. There is a non-gendered bathroom at Out Boulder, which you can use to change your clothes upon arrival if you would like. Also feel free to bring any clothing that you would like to get rid of due to transition - it might be perfect for someone else who is in need of clothing. We are always happy to see new faces. Come out and join us.
For more information, see our group agreements and guidelines. If you have further questions or need accommodations to attend, please contact Li Brookens by email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone, (720) 663-0163.
