For Family Members & Friends

Maybe it's your child, a parent or other family member, or maybe it's a co-worker, a classmate or your child’s best friend.  Maybe you find us unusual and feel we need to be supported and cared for, too, and you want to help.  Or perhaps you are a professional that deals with gender variant people in your career or workplace, and you need to learn more.

Whatever your reason, we want you to feel welcomed at TransCentralPA and offer an opportunity for you to connect with others who have a Transgender friend or family member.  We have several cis-gender (non-Transgender) individuals who are available to answer your questions, hear your concerns and offer their support. 

Below is both downloadable material as well as links to other sites that others have found helpful.

Please email us at
to connect with other family members
