We hope that you will visit one of our meetings, whether you are a parent, family member, or friend of a GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender) person or are GLBT yourself. We believe that you will find a group of caring people who want to understand where you are and perhaps where you are trying to go in your life.
Our group is made up of parents, family, and friends, as well as GLBT folks themselves. It is a wonderful, supportive mixture of people who learn from each other about their lives.
Come and join us!
MCV's New Transgender-Specific Health Course
VCU's Medical College of Virginia is one of only a few universities to provide a course addressing the health needs of the transgender community. The course, entitled Introduction to Transgender Medicine, will be offered as an elective during the fall 2015 semester.
According to the developers of the course, doctors should be aware of the specific issues (ethical, medical, and physiological) faced by a gender nonconforming individual when treating that patient. The goal is for students taking this course to become more comfortable and knowledgeable about providing the appropriate care and services to someone who identifies as transgender.
