“"Transgender people have been a part of the LGBT movement from its beginnings. As people began to see their sexual orientation as a health part of their identity, and found the prejudice they faced oppressive, they found common cause with those who expressed their gender identity differently than the majority of society."”

This guide will provide practical ideas for how LGBT organizations can take concrete steps to providing a more welcoming environment for transgender people. It will also directly address the challenges and opportunities that arise in this process. This resource is specifically written for LGBT groups and organizations that want to be more inclusive of transgender people.
