Welcome to BATS
(Boston Area Trans* Support)
We are a peer-run support group for transgender, non-binary, and questioning young adults based in Cambridge, MA. We are intersectional, anti-racist, and committed to providing peer support and a safe space for trans* people of all identities and abilities.
We are a group of trans* and gender diverse young adults (late teens – 30’s) who meet two or three times a month to give and get support, connect, and socialize. We are inclusive to everybody under the trans* umbrella: male to female (MtF), female to male (FtM), genderqueer, genderfluid, bigender, agender, as well as folks who are questioning and exploring their gender. Our goal is to make everybody comfortable and included!
Come to our group if you are looking for support in understanding your gender identity, help with coming out or transitioning, emotional support, a sense of community, a place where you belong, or just to meet relatable people. Our meetings are about group participation and mutual respect; a volunteer facilitator and group check-in help to ensure that no one member dictates the flow and everyone has a chance to express themselves.
