New Transgender Support Group in Jamestown

from Southern Tier Trans Network

A new support group for transgender people, the Southern Tier Trans Network, has been formed to provide peer support, education and resources for the trans community and its allies in the southern tier of New York State. We are an open and inclusive community, welcoming all gender variant people no matter what part of the trans umbrella they sit under and no matter what their physical age or sexual orientation may be. Confidentiality will be strictly enforced.

“There is a real need for something like this in the southern tier of New York state,” says Emelye Waldherr, the group’s coordinator, “The larger cities on the northern tier have numerous resources for transgender people that are lacking in this region. We aim for this group to fulfill this vital need.”

The group meets in Jamestown, New York, on the third Friday of every month at 7:00 PM. Please contact Emelye at [email protected] or [email protected] to arrange an interview prior to attending your first meeting.
