Identi-T* at The Center provides transgender and gender non-conforming individuals from the Southern Nevada a safe place to relate to their peers, seek guidance, exchange clothing and expand their social circles.
Out of the (Gender) Box
Out of the (Gender) Box is a weekly discussion group that provides safe space for folks who identify outside of (or don’t quite fit into) the ‘male’ and ‘female’ boxes assigned to us by society. Discussion topics focus on the many different ways in which gender impacts and shapes our lives and what it is like to exist as individuals and a community that refuse to be confined to boxes that we didn’t create. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome to attend. Tuesdays 7–8:30 pm.
2016 activity schedule: 1st Tuesdays (visual media), 2nd Tuesdays (arts & crafts), 3rd Tuesdays (show & tell), 4th Tuesdays (games), 5th Tuesdays (open).
SWITCH — Trans* Clothing Swap
The free weekly SWITCH Trans* Clothing Swap provides space for getting rid of clothes and accessories that don’t express who you are and replacing them with items you can’t wait to wear! Thursdays 5–6 pm and Fridays 3–5pm.
Built upon the concept of celebrating people of all gender identities and expressions, Trans.lation provides support and community-building opportunities for transgender people and their loved ones of all ages. The Center has long seen gaps in services for the Southern Nevada transgender community. Trans.lation was developed in response to this pressing need and continues to provide much-needed support and visibility to the transgender and gender non-conforming members of our community. Fridays 5:30–7 pm.
A peer-facilitated supportive discussion group for trans and gender non-conforming individuals who identify as masculine of center or questioning, the Transmasculine Group aims to create a safer space for folks to discuss and share experiences, ask questions, and build community. Third Saturday of each month 10:30–11:30 am. (Note: This is a closed group for transgender and gender non-conforming folks who identify as masculine of center. The facilitator is a transmasculine-identified person.)
