A guide to transgender life in Detroit, the transgender heart of the midwest, including information concerning our regular transgatherings we call the Detroit TG Invasion.

Welcome to TG Detroit

TGDetroit is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for all transgender individuals, operating out of  Detroit, Michigan. Unlike some cities, the Greater Detroit transgender community is inclusive, welcoming all individuals under the transgender umbrella, whether part time, full time, post op, pre op or non op, along with all allies and supporters, and with no labels and prejudices. All are welcome in our local family.

TGDetroit is one of several support agencies within South East Michigan, and coordinates fully with all other local groups in all ways possible to support the quest for equal rights for all transgender individuals.


One of our ways of doing so is through the hosting of regular social gathering we call Detroit Invasions. Invasion events take place in regular intervals, and bring together TG from all over the United States and Canada. Besides being fun, social events, Invasion gatherings are also political, in the sense that visibility is, in itself, a political act. Invasion events take place in highly public venues with the aim of mainstreaming the transgender experience. Now finishing our 5th year and approaching our 20th event, Invasion affects the lives of well over 400 transgender individuals a year, as well as countless mainstream people, who often encounter us for the first time during one of these events.

In July 2019, our summer event grew into a Midwestern Transgender conference called “Detroit Trans-Fusion”. For 2020, this growth will continue.

We hope that you will join us! Keep abreast of new developments by joining our mailing list.
