About Us


The Transgender Equality Network exists to create and catalog transgender-related resources. We accomplish our goals by forming coalitions with our local allies, establishing relationships with transgender groups in other regions of the country, collecting information regarding transgender-friendly service providers, creating new programs, and encouraging others to adapt to our needs through educational and political action.


Medical care, support groups, legal services, friends, and allies are examples of the basic needs for our transgender population and they are not always easy to find. It is the goal of the Transgender Equality Network to establish an accessible resource network for those in need in addition to providing direct services and lobbying for increased transgender acceptance. These goals are met by locating existing resources, facilitating the creation of service programs, and by encouraging others to make their current services trans*-friendly.
