Trans+ Groups at UMKC

By , September 1, 2015 5:18 pm

Trans+_Fall2015We wanted you to know about two transgender support/discussion groups at UMKC that are both open to UMKC students, students at other colleges, and community members. In addition, we have attached a transgender resources sheet for Kansas City that would be a great resource to hand out to trans+ or gender-questioning individuals.

The first is a Trans+Social Group that is a trans-exclusive space for trans+ identifying college students and young adult community members that meets on Monday nights from 6-8 p.m. in the Rainbow Lounge at UMKC (see attached flyer for more information).

We also have four Trans+Allies events this semester that are open to trans+ individuals of all ages, friends, family, community members, students, and anyone who identifies as an ally. The events are all scheduled for the first Wednesday of each month in UMKC’s Student Union room 302 from 6-8 p.m. starting September 2nd (see attached flyer for more information). Free pizza will be provided. These events are great for mental health professionals, family members of trans+ individuals, as well as trans+ individuals who are unavailable on Thursday nights or are not college students or young adults. The topics of the four meetings are as follow:

  • September 2nd- Ally Development: How to be an advocate
  • October 7th- New Girls on the Block Discussion (Student Union, Room 402)
  • November 4th- Binary Trans Panel
  • December 2nd- Parents of Trans Children and Young Adults Roundtable

Please contact for more information or to be added to our listserv. Thank you!
