NYC Trans Community Events
June, transwoman, works at the Sylvia Rivera Law Project:
"There are few places where transgender people can be a part of the LGBT community and receive social services; fewer places dedicate themselves to transgender individuals. The GIP is peer-driven and comprised primarily of members of the trans community. It is important to have a place like this available."
Gender Identity Project (GIP)
Welcome to the Center's Gender Identity Project (GIP)!
About the Gender Identity Project
The Center's Gender Identity Project (GIP) works to foster the healthy development of transgender and gender non-conforming people, partners, family and community. Through the delivery of a range of transgender-driven supportive services, advocacy, outreach, education and capacity-building, the GIP creates a safe and productive atmosphere for community-building, wellness and self-care, and leadership development.
The GIP provides an opportunity for trans-identified individuals to interact with other trans-identified and allied service providers, who serve as both powerful role models as well as supportive agents in the process of normalizing a person’s trans-identity.

Health Care Provider Directory Now Available
The first-ever public directory of transgender-sensitive health care providers in the New York City metropolitan area is now available for download. The directory, a project of the Transgender Health Initiative of New York, and spearheaded by Health Initiative founding member NYAGRA, includes listings of physicians, mental health professionals, acupuncturists, and AIDS agencies as well as other health care providers. Up until now, community members could access transgender-sensitive physicians and other health care providers through referrals from social service providers, but there has never been a published directory of such health care providers available to the general public. Download the directory now!
