Welcome to TransFamily Kingston

About Us

Who We Are

We are a diverse group of transgender people, family members, friends and allies in the Kingston Ontario area.  We gather at least once a month to share stories and experiences, provide peer support, and assist each other in navigating the various barriers faced by trans people and by their supporters.

We seek to combat the loneliness and isolation often felt by trans* people and those sharing their journey.

TransFamily Kingston was started in 2012 by a few people looking for the support of others who shared similar experiences.  It has continued to grow and evolve dynamically.  TransFamily Kingston embraces and accepts anyone on the (trans)gender spectrum and any family members searching for support or more information.  We provide a safe and all-inclusive environment for group meetings, discussions, and sharing of experiences.


Monthly Meetings

We gather in downtown Kingston on the 2nd Saturday of every month for a casual gathering where we share food and conversation.

TransFamily in the Community

Members of our group who share similar interests often form friendships and meet for other activities outside of the monthly TransFamily Kingston meetings.

We are active in the Kingston community and some of our members participate at events such as Pride Weekend,  The Reelout Film Festival, The Skeleton Park Festival, Transgender Day of Remembrance, and the Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

We are a source of information for other members of the community and service providers.  Some members of TransFamily Kingston serve as educators/speakers to other groups.
