Come Visit Us!

The MCC of the Spirit


Are you Transgendered or are you a friend or family member of someone who is transgendered and would like more information?  Are you just emerging from the proverbial closet and feeling nervous or self-conscious?

Well, our goal is to provide a meaningful and enjoyable opportunity to feel comfortable with yourself and loved ones.  If this is your first time, being nervous is expected and we promise to do all we can to help alleviate your anxiety. We guarantee you’ll develop honest and true friendships faster than you every have in your life. We all have known at one point the anxiety of keeping this ‘secret.’ Share yours and let go of that toxic shame and guilt! There is a lot to digest both educationally and emotionally!

We meet at the MCC of the Spirit.  Doors open at approximately 8:00 pm and the meeting begins at 8:30 pm. General announcements are made and everyone is invited to introduce themselves.  We then open up the floor to those who briefly have something to share with the group followed by social time with coffee and cookies.  Meetings typically end at about 10:00 to 10:30 pm.  Licensed therapists with experience in Transgender and relationship issues are invited to each of our meetings to offer assistance and encouragement to those wanting to share their personal struggles and issues.  So if you have been considering seeing a therapist, you may want to consider Alexis and Amy.

Everyone is Invited to Join Us!

Our meetings are free and open to everyone.  We don't charge monthly meeting fees (although donations are always accepted). We don't want anyone to feel that they cannot attend our meetings simply because of money.  So please come join us.  If you are interested in joining and supporting our group by becoming a member, it's $20 a year, that's it.  Visit our Membership page for more information about how to join.

Out to dinner in downtown Harrisburg

Social time after one of our meetings

Prior to our meeting, several of us meet for dinner at one of several restaurants around Harrisburg.  The venue changes each month, so please check the website (at the bottom of the page) for the location.  Everyone is invited to join us, but you must RSVP for dinner because seating maybe limited.  We like to provide the restaurants with an accurate headcount so they can accommodate our group and their other patrons as well. 

After the meeting, several of us will go out 'After Hours' to a local restaurant, bar or nightclub for some additional social time and fun.  Information on the location of 'After Hours' is also at the bottom of each of our webpages. 

Being out for your first time can be exhilarating, but will also lead to a number of profound emotions, feelings, thoughts and questions that you’ll want to remember and reflect upon when you have more time. You may want to consider keeping a journal to jot down your thoughts and feelings.
