Trans* and Genderqueer Resources in Boulder County

title image

Transgender, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, and gender fluid people have unique challenges to accessing resources in the community.  This is a list of providers and agencies that have been identified as Trans* friendly by members of the Boulder County community. 

For more medical resources and reviews of medical and mental health professionals, check out www.transhealthbouldercounty.org

If you would like to be considered for this list, please email sconnell[at]outboulder.org or call 303.499.5777.  We have chosen to focus on resources only availiable in the Boulder County area, but statewide resources with 24-hour hotlines or other services may be listed as well.

Additionally, if you're looking for general information on employment, including how to file a discrimination claim, coming out to your co-workers or resources for navigating education as a transgender person, see our Transgender Employment and Education Resource Page here.

Organizations and Support Groups

Boulder Trans and Genderqueer Support Group

Boulder Trans and Genderqueer Support (BTGS) offers support group meetings and social gatherings for people of all ages who identify as transgender and/or identify anywhere within the gender variant spectrum/sphere/torus. Our support meetings emphasize respect for peoples' experience in all types of gender variant identities, including: trans women, trans men, trans masculine/feminine, genderqueer, agender, non-binary, gender fluid, genderfuck, two spirit, pangender, genderless, crossdresser, transsexual, queer, third gender, bi-gender, genderfluid, intersex, and of course anyone questioning/deciphering their gender identity. 

For the safety and comfort of our group members, our meetings are not currently open to SOFFAs (significant others, family, family, friends or allies of trans and genderqueer folks). The group is consciously welcoming to gender variant people of color and persons with disabilities and we strive to build and maintain an anti-oppressive, inclusive group culture. Please come if you want support in your experience, you want to hear from others about their experience, or maybe you just want to spend time in a group of people that is accepting of you as you are.

Location: 
Out Boulder Pridehouse - 2132 14th Street, Boulder.
Call (303) 499-5777 for more information
