The San Diego LGBT Community Center has launched Project TRANS, its transgender services program that offers discussion groups, behavioral health services, HIV prevention services, youth services and more.
In addition, Project TRANS will also focus on advocacy, referrals, outreach, cultural sensitivity trainings, social activities and events, workshops and networking with community agencies.
Through a partnership with the Transgender Law Center, Project TRANS will also provide assistance with legal documents for those who need to change their name and gender marker on their driver’s license or other forms of identification, often a daunting task for transgender individuals.
The new project will be led by program coordinator Connor Maddocks, who has served the community with The Center for seven years.
“I’m hoping we can help build and strengthen the community, and make clear that the transgender and gender queer community are safe, welcomed and celebrated at The Center,” Maddocks said.
