Here is a listing of support organizations and groups that can help
you find out even more information about Transgender issues.  
Some of these are run by professionals and some are sites like mine
that are concerned members of the Transgender Community trying
to help others in any way they can.  These links should all work but
you find one that does not link to a site any more, please notify me
of the site name.  Thanks!

Support Groups with a Personal Touch

These are groups and organizations which I've been a member of or
I know someone who is a member
 










Trans-Pitt Back when I was trying for the very first time to come
out, these were the ladies that helped me feel strong enough to
step out for my very first time, and for that I will always be thankful
for.  This is a absolutely great group of girls.  If you are in the
Pittsburgh Area please contact them.  











PERSAD I cannot say enough about this place!  I went to PERSAD
for over 2 years and they helped me so much.  I was finally able to
talk to someone about the real deep feelings that I had only been
able to keep to myself.  This is one top notch organization in my
book and I can never thank them enough for all they were able to
help me with.
