Transgender Support Group

Peer Support Group

The Transgender Support Group is peer support group that allows for transgender individuals to meet and discuss a wide range of topics associated with being transgender. The support group is open to all individuals under the Transgender Spectrum including but not limited to: Transgender (FTM, MTF), Genderqueer, Genderfulid, and Agender. It is requested that new participants contact Jake D. Moore or Orion Asher Lightly for more information before attending. The peer support group meets weekly on Fridays.

 

*Please note that Transgender Support Group is a peer support group and that there is no mental health counselor or other accredited person present

Transgender and Ally Discussion Group 

Every first Friday of the month the Transgender Peer Support Group opens its doors to Allies to learn about and discuss Trans* issues. Please contact Jake D. Moore for more information.

Support and Discussion Group Policy

 All support and social group participants must be currently enrolled in classes at the University of North Florida. Special considerations will be made for college students at FSCJ, JU, or another college/university. One-time exceptions may be made for visitors by contacting Kaitlin Legg, Assistant Director, at k.legg@unf.edu at least one week prior to preferred visit. A one-time exception is not necessarily guaranteed.

 

The primary mission of these groups, as well as the UNF LGBT Resource Center, is to support LGBTQIA college students. Due to increasing attendance and need, the Center can no longer support community members within support and social groups. In addition to the scope limitations of the Center’s mission, it also must follow safety and confidentiality agreements and safe space guidelines, which restrict most areas of service to college students and the campus community.
