What are Sessions like?

Are you ready to explore your gender and the way it connects to all the other parts of you? Wondering if labels like “trans,” “nonbinary,” or “gender-expansive” make sense of how you experience things? Well, you’re invited to this 4 week journey alongside other folks with the same questions!

Fall 2022 Gender Exploration Sessions will take place on:

  • Thurs, October 6th – 4pm PT/7pm ET – Session #1
  • Thurs, October 13th – 4pm PT/7pm ET – Session #2
  • Thurs, October 20th – 4pm PT/7pm ET – Session #3
  • Thurs, October 27th – 4pm PT/7pm ET – Session #4

We’ll be holding space for questions like:

  • “Am I really trans if I don’t fit the common narratives?”
  • “What if this is all in my head?”
  • “Does questioning my gender make me a bad Christian?”
  • “Am I too old/young to figure this out?”
  • “Is this about what I like to wear, or who I am?”
  • and more!

We’ll be moving together as a cohort, so you’ll be seeing the same faces each time, and coming out of the experience with new friends and neighbors!
Signups close October 5th.

A few things to know before signing up

  • Our Gender Exploration Sessions have no specific identity requirements—if you’re exploring your gender and think you might fall outside of the “cis box,” you’re invited! We love our cisgender allies, but this is a space specifically for those of us who have often not felt safe sharing about our gender-related identities and experiences in other faith-based support groups.

  • Our groups are only open to people age 18 and up. It’s not that we don’t want you with us, teens! It’s just that there are much better groups for you over at Beloved Arise, at Affirming Youth Ministries, and at Gender Spectrum. Head on over there and check out the faith programming available!

  • Our groups are not a therapy substitute. TMC group leaders are not mental health professionals, and the purpose of this group is to build community and provide a space for sharing and support.

Confidentiality Notice: TMC Groups are semi-confidential. This means we will not share anything said during groups with the broader TMC community, or with anyone outside TMC, without your permission. However, TMC leaders may share important information with others in leadership in order to best support our community. TMC does not participate in non-consensual active rescue, which means we will not call emergency services unless someone directly asks us to, or we believe there is a credible threat to a third party.
