Resources Available For Transgender People

In light of Bruce Jenner’s Friday night interview with Diane Sawyer sharing his story of being transgender, I thought it would be useful to share some resources both nationally and here in Las Vegas for folks who would like more information on on the topic of transgender.

Here in Las Vegas, look to The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada, or as everyone calls it – The Center.

Located at 401 S. Maryland Parkway (between Charleston & Fremont), The Center has resources for the entire LGBT community including specific support and social groups for transgender folks.

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. Stop by or call 702-733-9800 for more information.

For a broader, more national resource, I’d head over to The National Center for Transgender Equality. There you can find all kinds of information: from schools and healthcare to immigration and identification, policies affecting trans people are advancing every day. Find the latest information about existing laws and policies, and how you can improve the laws and policies in your area.

Across the country, you can find the closest LGBT center to you by clicking here.
