TransGender San Francisco is a support and social group for the entire TransGender and Gender-Non-Conforming community.
If you are feeling in crisis please contact TransLifeline.org US: (877) 565-8860, Canada: (877) 330-6366.
We always NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS! Please contact us, firstname.lastname@example.org .
This site is considered NSFW (Not Safe For Work) because gender is often confused with sex and sexuality. Why sex and sexuality are not “safe” topics is a discussion we need to have too!

Comments Off on 2018 Who, What, When, Where,… Why?
Who? TGSF is open to ALL “transgender” or “gender non-conforming” folks, and supporters. Historically we’ve had people of all ages, races, abilities, histories, religions, directions, and stages. What we share is our common trait of not identifying with our assigned-gender-at-birth. We welcome more people to diversify our membership.
What? TGSF is about any expression of gender that is not the one that society expects based on our assigned-gender-at-birth. There may have been some medical reason, or chosen this path. We are open to all.
When? Our most consistent event is our End of Month, which happens on the LAST (not 4th) Thursday of the month. Except:
- March, we attend TDoV (Transgender Day of Visibility) – http://TDoV.org/
- June, we attend Trans March – http://TransMarch.org/
- November 20, we attend TDoR (Transgender Day of Remembrance) – http://TDoRSF.org/
- December, we’ll meet before the traditional winter holidays
- And, when another community event is happening (like a demonstration, or exhibition, etc.) we will join, in community. So, ALWAYS check the calendar for the latest information.
Where? Over the years we’ve met in different venues. In the “old days” we had to meet in back rooms and private locations for SAFETY! Now, at least in San Francisco, we are meeting openly, in public. ALWAYS check the calendar for details of where we are going to meet.
Why? Trans folk have always existed in all cultures throughout history. Unfortunately, in SOME cultures, we have been attacked for being different. We have been marginalized and sometimes forced to do things that we might not otherwise have chosen, just to survive. Please come to our events to discuss this as well as technical/social details of acceptance, “transition”, or any other related topic.
Thank you to all who have brought us this far, and to those who support our moving forward.

TGSF usually has an End of Month dinner/gathering on the last Thursday of each month, except:
Our End of Month dinner is relatively inexpensive, and in fact there is no minimum, so if you’re not hungry, that’s fine. We just sit, maybe eat, and talk about whatever is on everyone’s mind.
These days we’re meeting at Frjtz, 590 Valencia St. but you should always check the calendar and/or the Meetup site to make sure we’re not trying something new. We’re hoping that with it being so close to a BART station that we’ll get more people to come. We’re here for you! 🙂 ALL are welcome!

We are now having our End of Month get togethers at the Squat & Gobble restaurant, 3600 16TH St, San Francisco, CA 94114-1588, (415) 552-2125.
Come and have fun… and ask any questions you may have about being transgender/gender non-conforming.
We usually meet the last Thursday of the month from 7pm to 9pm. In June we go to Trans March, the Friday of Pride weekend. On November 20 we go to TDOR.
Hope to see you at one of our events.
