Borderlands - Transgender, Transsexual, Genderqueer, and/OR Intersex Support Group:

This group is open to transgender, transsexual, Two Spirit, genderqueer, intersex, and/or trans-questioning people- any of these identifications or experiences are welcome, regardless of whether you want to transition socially or medically or not at all! Are you considering gender transition or sex affirmation? Are you in the process of social or medical transition? Did you transition in the past and want a confidential place at Brown where you can be open about your history? Are you genderqueer and seeking a welcoming space to express your identity or feelings? Do you have a transgender, transsexual, or gender variant identity or expression? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you may be interested in this support group.  This group seeks to provide you with a safe, non-judgemental space to express, explore, exchange, and connect with other trans or GQ folk.
**To preserve the privacy of those who may be stealth, this group is NOT open to family or allies.**

Brown partners with the TGI Network of RI to provide this support. For more information, email
