  • Trams4Matioms is a support group for all trans-identified people, of all types. We offer a supportive environment where people can explore or discuss matters related to gender. We are all social beings who need emotional support, positive feedback, and influence throughout our lives. We get these things through our individual social support networks that are often made up of friends and family members. Many transgender people find that being a part of a transgender support group, or having understanding friends and family members, greatly improves their self-esteem and social lives. Having people in your life who accept and support you generally improves your quality of life, no matter who you are. Trams4mations meets on the second and fourth Monday of the month from 6PM to 8PM, and every Thursday from noon to 2:00 PM. We can often provide information about gender therapists, endocrinologists, and other support groups. We also support each other and are a part of the local trans community. We meet at Aids Project Worcester, 85 Green Street, Worcester, MA 01604. For more information contact Lauren Gartenlaub at (508) 755-3773.
