Not that long ago there were few sources for information for and about transgender and nonbinary people. Happily, that is no longer the case. There are now thousands!
Rather than list every resource we can identify, we have opted to primarily list meta-resources– websites and organizations that are not only helpful in and of themselves, but provide their own, often extensive lists of resources. This lets us provide more information in less space.
First, let’s point out ourselves. TransWeek is a week-long conference and celebration for transgender and nonbinary people and their partners, families, and supporters. It has been held every October since 1974 in Provincetown, on Cape Cod, in Massachusetts. Provincetown is and always has been an extraordinarily diverse and accepting town, and the Fair is a place to learn, make new friends, and strengthen your relationships. More than that, it provides time and space for you to present
