Discussion and Information
Trans Talks is a peer led discussion group that allows transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming individuals to meet and discuss a wide range of topics associated with being transgender. This group is open to all individuals under the Transgender Spectrum including but not limited to: Transgender, Genderqueer, Genderfluid, and Agender.
Contact the group facilitators - Xzavier, for more information on the group. Please note that Trans Talks is a peer discussion group and that there is no mental health counselor or other accredited professional available at these events.
Support and Discussion Group Policy
All Trans Talk 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 Dwan Love-Dinkens, Program Coordinator, 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 social groups like Trans Talks. In addition to the scope of the Center's mission, social groups must also follow safety and confidentiality agreements and safe space guidelines, which restrict most areas of service to college students and the campus community.
