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 Viola (the group facilitator) who can link you in with services at The Gender Centre, such as our counsellor  psychologists  or our case work team .

Transtopia runs once a month on a Wednesday night from 5pm to 7pm at The Gender Centre. The group is an open group, and bookings are  NOT required

Snacks are provided, as well as music, art supplies and comfortable couches and bean bags. Name tags are also available for you to put your preferred name and pronouns. So feel free to drop by any time between 5pm and 7pm and meet some new friendly faces. If you are under 16 we ask that you fill out the following parental consent form ------------------ and hand it to Viola when you arrive.

Please be advised that Transtopia is a group for young transgender, gender diverse and gender questioning youth only, family members and non-transgender friends are not encouraged to attend.Transtopia aims to provide a safe space for young transpeople to connect with others, enjoy activities as well as talk about things impacting on their life in a safe and non- judgmental space
