TRANSTOPIA YOUTH

Are You Transgender? ... Gender Questioning? ... Gender Queer?

"Transtopia" is a monthly social group for transgender and gender questioning teens between the ages of 14 to 19.

Transtopia is a safe place for teens to hang out and be themselves, to form friendships with people like them, and people who “get it”.

Transtopia is not a therapy group, however if you would like some further support or therapy  you can speak to Imogen  (the group facilitator) who can link you in with services at The Gender Centre, such as our counsellor  psychologists  or our case work team .
