>> King County Trans* Resource & Referral Guide

Check out this amazing resource!  Gendercast participated in the workgroup for this guide and is proud to share this first community DRAFT project with all of you!!

Seattle is an epicenter for trans* art, culture, and politics. Yet navigating basic services, such as healthcare, education, employment, and housing can present significant barriers for trans* people, their families, and communities. While state and municipal laws prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and expression, trans* people continue to experience vulnerabilities based on ongoing discrimination, stigma, isolation, violence, and related poverty.

The 2014 King County Trans* Resource & Referral Guide aims to educate and raise awareness of community needs and gaps in services, while strengthening partnerships between existing services and improving the system of referrals between organizations and groups county-wide.  The guide focuses on free or low-cost community-based resources and includes health and wellness services, peer support, advocacy groups, cultural and social connections, and more.

The guide was produced over six months in a collaborative process coordinated by the LGBTQ Access Project. A number of local stakeholders groups were involved, such as: Ingersoll Gender Center,  Gender Justice League, Gendercast, Gender Diversity, Gender Odyssey, the Washington Gender Alliance, NW Network of Bi, Trans, Lesbian, and Gay Survivors of Abuse, Asian Pacific Islander Chaya, Seattle HIV Vaccine Trial Unit, Teen Feed, and many others. The project is receiving support from King County’s Equity and Social Justice Initiative and the City of Seattle’s LGBT Commission.

The King County 2014 Trans* Resource & Referral Guide is available online at:

Downloadable PDF for booklet printing, larger font versions, and/or electronic embed codes are available upon request by email.
