Resources

GLAAD.org – Resources—Resources for transgender people who are struggling and people who want to learn about trans identities with an emphasis on media coverage of trans people (I used to work here)

Hudson’s FtM Guide—The most comprehensive guide for anyone masculine who was born female, from transitioning, to legal information, to surgery information. The website looks spare, but that’s because he wants even our brothers in low bandwidth areas to more easily access the site.

TransGenderLawCenter.org—Legal resources for transsexuals and transgenders.

TheTrevorProject.org—Call 1-866-488-7386, chat online confidentially with a counselor or text START to 678678. Available 24/7.
(Please do not search for or call the Trans Lifeline. Their owners have squandered the money that was meant to help fund the service, calls have put on hold, and even rumors circulate that they have told members of our communities to just go “do it”.)

TransBucket—Online resource to help trans people seeking to physically transition connect with surgeons and their patients.

Callen-Lorde.org, Community Health Center—Offers trans and HIV/AIDS-competent medical care, support groups, an adolescent-specific health program called HOTT, and dental services, in the NYC Center. They have two locations: one in Chelsea, Manhattan (212-271-7200) and one in the Bronx (718-215-1800).  Their Chelsea location has its own pharmacy. They will take you in even if you are unable to pay your bills; I currently don’t have comprehensive healthcare, but they allow me to pay based on what recent paychecks stated.

GayCenter.org – The LGBT Center of NYC—Offers a variety of services and support groups for LGBTQ+ people, as well as adolescent-specific programming. Located on 13th St. between 7th and 8th avenues. The Center was founded in the 1980s, so they have a long history of supporting the community.

PFLAG.org — With nearly 400 chapters in cities around the US, PFLAG offers support groups for LGBTQ+ people and their families. Many chapters have both an LGBQ+ group and a trans-focused support group. Their website also provides information on how to start a new chapter if there is not one accessible to you.
