Transgender Programs

At OBC we serve transgender, gender non-conforming, and questioning adults and youth of all ages in Boulder County. We have focused intently on creating specific programming to address the unique issues of the trans and gender-expansive community.

Take a look at our events calendar for more transgender programming, such as the Trans & SOFFA Picnic and Transgender Awareness Week.

We have bus passes available for folks who need assistance with transportation to get to and from our transgender programming. If you need support with this, please reach out to Michal (mduffy@outboulder.org) or one of the group facilitators.

Gender Support groups are open to anyone that has a gender expansive identity including transgender, genderqueer, gender fluid, agender, non-binary, and intersex people. We also support people who are questioning their identity and people who don't want to label themselves yet (or at all).

Attending the group is free and we have trained, dedicated transgender facilitators. All we ask is that you fill out a quick survey when you first come and follow our Support Group Rules.

 

Boulder County Gender Support (BCGS) is seeking new facilitators!

Boulder County Gender Support (BCGS) is one of the longest-standing programs at Out Boulder County (OBC). This group offers peer-support for transgender and gender expansive identities including transgender, genderqueer, gender fluid, agender, non-binary, and intersex people; those who are questioning their gender are also invited to attend. Peer-support groups serve as a source of understanding, strength, and reflection for many community members, but they are not therapy. Facilitators meet monthly with a Therapist Advisor who offers support and insight on facilitation and group dynamics. Groups are facilitated by a minimum of two facilitators per meeting. Facilitators must complete annual Facilitation and Diversity & Inclusion trainings, arranged by OBC.

Thanks to funding from Boulder County and the City of Boulder, OBC is now able to pay facilitators a stipend for their time and efforts. We deeply appreciate the invaluable contributions of our volunteer facilitators over the many years, and are happy to finally be able to support facilitator sustainability with pay. If you identify under the trans and gender-expansive umbrella(s) and are interested in joining the facilitator team, please review the Job Description and complete the BCGS Facilitator Application. Reach out to Jenn (she/her) with any questions at BCGScoordinator@outboulder.org. Staff support contact is Michal (they/them): mduffy@outboulder.org.
