8 weekly sessions, 2 hours each
This in-person program, offered in collaboration with London InterCommunity Health Centre, provides a safe space to explore questions of gender identity and belonging.
Who should attend?
This group is primarily for individuals age 16+ in the beginning stages of transition, which includes those just thinking about transition and those who may have already taken early steps towards their transition, as well as those who are gender-questioning.
Participants are expected to commit to attending all 8 group sessions. This is not a drop-in group, and the group is closed to new registrants after session 2.

“It has allowed me to forge connections with others and become more sure of myself along my path.”
“I didn’t know very much going in and over time I was able to solidify who I am a little more. Gender Journeys helped calm a lot of my confusion.”
“It has allowed me to realize that it (gender change) is a journey. I felt a lot of pressure to ‘just fix it’ to be done with it. The group helped me to realize that I don’t have to fix it. I can just be. No hurry.”
