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 entering our sixth year with more than 20 events under our belt, TGDetroit affects the lives of well over 400 transgender individuals a year along with countless more mainstream people, many of whom encounter their first transgender person at one of our events.
For 2020 we have a full agenda of events including our first transgender Job Fair – Trans-Works.
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.
