INGERSOLL ALL TRANS SUPPORT GROUP | WEDNESDAYS 7-9PM

A Support group run by Ingersoll Gender Center to support transgender people, genderqueer, trans* and gender variant people and the people who support them.

 Ingersoll Gender Center

Ingersoll Gender Center

  • Ongoing, every Wednesday evening from 7-9pm
  • Cost: Free
  • Open to all, Drop-in

Every Wednesday, Ingersoll holds it's "All-Trans", peer-facilitated support group at the offices of Seattle Counseling Service. This group is the foundation of all of Ingersoll's programming, and also provides a great place for trans*, transgender, gender variant, genderqueer, questioning, friends, family and community allies to come together for information and mutual support.

The Wednesday group has two types of groups: The first and third Wednesdays of the month are our 'breakout sessions', where we divide our attendees into smaller, focus groups. The five focus groups are as follows: male-identified, female identified, genderqueer, and SOFFA (significant other, family, friends, and allies) as well as our Seattle Transgender Economic Empowerment Project (STEEP) support group. All other Wednesdays, we meet as a single, large group, typically running more than thirty people. Groups are facilitated by trained peer-facilitators from our own community. Discussions are free ranging, confidential and focused on the interests and concerns of the people who attend the group. This is also a good place to come to get information and referrals for other services you may need.
