Services for Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) People
NYC-Metro Area Transgender
and Gender Non-Conforming
(TGNC) Community Resources
Callen-Lorde Community Health Center
Updated 7/17/12 Compiled by Heath Mackenzie Reynolds
There are many resources out there for Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) people! This is
a guide to community organizations and social and supportive services in the NYC-Metro area that are
either known to have experience working with TGNC people, or who offer unique services that some in
our community might need. However, the presence of an organization here does not mean that it will be
a safe referral for all TGNC people. If you have any concerns, it is always a good idea to bring a friend or
other supportive ally with you.
Finally: Resource guides are always evolving! We hope to keep up-to-date. If you are starting an
organization or service for TGNC people and want to be added to this resource guide, please call 212-
271-7200 and ask to speak to the Transgender Case Manager.
This guide is created for TGNC people in the NYC-Metro area. Inclusion of organizations here should not be taken to imply
endorsement by Callen-Lorde of these organizations.
