Guelph Gender Journeys - Fall 2019

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 - 18:00
Join a free 10-week program that explores gender identity starting on Tuesday, September 24th at Guelph Community Health Centre.
 
The group will meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:00PM until 7:30PM with meetings happening:
- September 24th
- October 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th
- November 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th.

This group will provide reliable, up to date information about the process of transitioning. Some of the topics include exploring your sense of self, self acceptance, celebrating your true self, coming out to family and friends, dealing with discrimination, self esteem and meeting others like you.

The group program “Gender Journeys” was developed in 2005 when we realized that people coming for medical care related to transition needed more time than we could provide during regular office visits to explore the social, emotional and physical aspects of gender change - and also needed a safe place to talk to others like themselves . The Gender Journeys Group was designed so that people in the early stages of transition could discuss changes in relationships with loved ones, grapple with discrimination, share tips about dressing to pass, discover new community resources, and use the process of dialogue and reflection to become more secure and resilient in their new identities.
