Welcome to TransGender San Francisco

TransGender San Francisco is a support and social group for the entire TransGender and Gender-Non-Conforming community.

This site is considered NSFW (Not Safe For Work) because gender is often confused with sex and sexuality. Why sex and sexuality are not “safe” topics is a discussion we need to have too!

We always NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS! Please contact us.

High Style – Museum Visit 2015

Hello all,

I’ve been interested in going to the SF Palace of the Legion of Honor’s exhibit “High Style – The Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection” which ends July 19. https://legionofhonor.famsf.org/highstyle/ Since the first Tuesday of the month is free admission, that would mean that we would only have to pay the Special Exhibit fee. See https://legionofhonor.famsf.org/highstyle/tickets for pricing.

So, if you’re interested in seeing “High Style”, on Tuesday, July 7, please let me know. If enough people (I think the minimum is 10) are interested, we can get a group admission, with maybe some benefits. If on the other hand you don’t want to pay for the Special Exhibit, you could just come to the free day of the museum itself, which is one of my favorites.

The museum closes at 5:15pm, so this is a daytime event. Obviously that limits who can come, so let’s see who’s interested. I am arbitrarily saying to meet at the Museum at 2pm. If you come by Mass Transit you get a $2 discount… check for other discounts.

Anther variation is that you could meet for dinner afterwards, somewhere more convenient (we often meet at Sparky’s at 7pm).

When responding, please say which part you’d like to participate in.

As always, we’re open to other suggestions for ideas of gatherings, and WELCOME VOLUNTEERS who would like to hep the organization grow.

What is TGSF?

I was recently asked if “TGSF is more FTM or MTF focused?”

I have been a member of TGSF since it was originally founded many years and many names ago. Historically TGSF (and it’s predecessors) were, and are, open to all Transgender, and GNC (Gender Non-Conforming)  people. Nevertheless, historically, we have been more mtf than ftm, but all are welcome.

That said, i would love to (re)make TGSF into an organization for all shades of GNC to join and work for our common good. This means socially, as well as politically.

Lately we have been too mtf, too transsexual, too white, too middle class, too “old”, too able-bodied, too English speaking, and probably too unaware of other differences. The only thing we have been consistent on is being welcoming to anyone who is just coming out… many of whom gain some confidence and then move on to another group where they feel more connected. The big historical changes of the last few decades is that there are a LOT of other successful Trans and GNC organizations now, and so we don’t have to hide as much.

My goal is to rebuild an organization that will retain those who come so that we can be even more welcoming to people who feel isolated and oppressed in general society.

TGSF WELCOMES VOLUNTEERS who want to work for a better, safer, and happier world. Let me know if you’d like to help.
