NYC-Metro Area Transgender and Gender Non-Binary Community Resources
Produced in conjunction with Mount Sinai, this community resource guide a guide contains information about community organizations and social and supportive services in the NYC-Metro area that are either known to have experience working with TGNB people, or who offer unique services that some in our community might need. However, the presence of an organization here does not mean that it will be a safe referral for all TGNB people. If you have any concerns, it is always a good idea to bring a friend or other supportive ally with you. Updated in March 2018
