The Trans Guide

What's This?

This initiative was born out of a desire to see more trans stories told by the people who lived them. It's a huge undertaking to think deeply about your own gender, and it can often be helpful to learn from others' experiences. It is the goal of this project to make it easier for people of all ages questioning their gender to learn about themselves, find community, and access legal, medical, and social resources.

As an oral history repository, The Trans Guide interviews and archives the life stories of trans folks around the U.S., providing allies and trans folks alike the opportunity to learn and grow from each others' life experiences.
