Trans* Issues Group at MIT
The Trans* Issues Group is an independent group of MIT staff, faculty,
and students (trans* people and allies) who are working to explore
and assess the areas of MIT policy and community life where trans
concerns may be better addressed. The Group also advocates for improvements
as needed in those areas.
If you wish to know more about the work we are doing, or if you
would like to join the Group, please feel free to email the Trans*
Issues Group. Your confidentiality will be protected. (Click

Local Boston-Area Support/Social Groups
Boston Area Trans Support
A peer run support group for young (teen, college, twenty-something) transgender people in the Boston area. This group was formed in response to other groups that already exist that do not meet the expectations and concerns for those in this age group, therefore joining the group is based on this. It is otherwise inclusive of those who are questioning their gender, from MTF to FTM to genderqueer to whatever gender descriptor you prefer. It is for those who are seeking others of similiar age for support in realization of one's gender identity, help with coming-out, transition concerns, and anything that else that members wish to bring up. Emphasis on group participation with the flow of each meeting not to be dictacted by any one member, and no particular end is promoted over another (to transition or not to transition, etc.). A LGBTIQ friendly safe space, with confidentiality agreement among members to respect other member's discussion.
Meetings will be held at MIT's LGBT student space in Cambridge.
