TransSOCIAL, Inc. is focused on expanding the safe and affirming resources available to our TLGBQ+ community.
“Without TransSOCIAL’s help, I wouldn’t have been able to afford my name change. They supported me through the whole process, and I’m so happy with my new name and gender on my drivers license!”
— Jamie, name change client
Name + Gender Marker Changes
Receiving a legal name change is an important step in many Trans peoples’ transitions. We work to remove the financial and legal barriers to help more people have access to a name change and accompany them through the process with community support and resources. Click Here for more information.
Pro Bono Legal Representation
We provide linkage to pro bono legal representation for Trans people who qualify, and assist others through the self-help process to file a legal name change, and in some cases a legal gender marker change, through their local family court system. We also help clients apply for a waiver of the court filing fee.
TLGBQ+ Cultural Sensitivity Training
Our Trans-focused, TLGBQ+ cultural sensitivity and competency training allows us to expand Trans-competent healthcare providers and employers in our community. Our workshops are free-of-charge for high schools and qualifying colleges and universities.
We offer three types of training:
- Introduction to Trans Identities, tailored to community groups and organizations.
- Creating a Welcoming Space, tailored to businesses and non-profits.
- Providing Safe and Affirming Care, tailored to healthcare providers.
We provide referrals to Trans-competent healthcare and mental healthcare providers, along with Trans-friendly public accommodations and services such as hairstylists, barbers, dentists, realtors, retail stores, and online vendors.
