How often does the support meetings happen?
We have a monthly meeting usually the first Wednesday of every month from 7pm-10pm. For more information on when they take place please contact us at our Facebook page or by email on our contact page. Our meetings are done in confidentiality with the member as to protect their privacy and the privacy of others. We are space for helping one another live their best life on their journey.
Do you have groups online for continued support and resources?
We do, once you've attended a meeting with us we can give you an invitation to a private group online using Facebook or on our private Discord server for open communication between all means of support across the state of South Carolina and local events.
Do you help those who are not yet transitioned?
We do, message us via our Facebook page or on our Contact Us page. If you're not out or transitioned, because of home life, work or even the fear of family disconnect. We are here to listen and support you. We will even refer you to local resources/therapists in your area if you have not been able to locate one. If we feel you need more direct support we will get you info on meeting with us at our support groups but will always respond to those in need.
Do you help with "passing" or "stealth"?
"Passing" is an unfortunate stigma a lot of transgender people live with. We're not here to help with blending in or going shopping, we would rather you be you. But, we also acknowledge the safety this can bring in certain environments here in the south. We can assist you in right direction for the resources that may help you on your journey, some of us can assist you in voice feminization resources but remember we will always accept you for you.
Do you have a hotline?
We don't but our friends at Trans Lifeline do and are available to listen to you 24/7. You will speak to a trans-person on the other end who will understand your issues and will help you through them. You can contact them at 877-565-8860. It gets better.
Who are all the people in these photos?
These are stock photos of trans people across the spectrum. The Gender Spectrum Collection is a stock photo library featuring images of trans and non-binary models that go beyond the clichés. This collection aims to help media better represent members of these communities as people not necessarily defined by their gender identities—people with careers, relationships, talents, passions, and home lives.
All of the photos in the Gender Spectrum Collection were taken by Zackary Drucker.
The painted transgender flag background was created by talented artist Garyck Arntzen
