Transgender Resources

Here's a list of transgender resources in the Ithaca, NY area.

This isn't a complete list; we're constantly adding to it and adding new categories. Let us know if there's a resource we can add, or if you'd like to suggest a new category.
By the way, these resources aren't just for folks who fall under the transgender umbrella.

We're proud to be a part of the Ithaca LGBT community, and many of the resources here also serve people who identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual.
