About TransGender Michigan

TransGender Michigan is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of transgender individuals in Michigan. Through education, support, and advocacy, TransGender Michigan strives to transform Michigan into a state where transgender individuals, and their significant others, friends, and families, can live free of hate, violence and discrimination.
