Welcome to the Transgender Education Association, Inc.  

Our organization is over 30 years old and our primary mission is to help those who identify within the transgender spectrum.  Since 1982, TGEA has been dedicated to educating, helping and supporting transgendered individuals, their Significant Others, Families, and Friends.  
Our web site is our online outreach program and is provided as a resource for members of the Transgender Community.  Whether you are curious about the transgender world, or are comfortably living in the gender that suits you, we hope you will find this web site to be a useful resource.  It contains information and resources for those seeking a better understanding of what being transgender means for their lives.  It is not a site for erotic or sexual content. 
Do not forget to stop in and check the events page for activaties, new events are always being added.
