SB179 Gender Recognition Act

Last fall, Governor Brown signed into law the Gender Recognition Act (California Senate Bill 179). The law streamlines the process for Californians to apply to change their gender markers and creates a nonbinary gender category (the letter “x” or “nb”) on California birth certificates, drivers’ licenses, identity cards, and gender-change court orders.

Our Trans Children

Their intent is to provide an introduction to trans issues suitable for parents, family members and friends, as well as employers, counselors and anyone else interested, within or beyond PFLAG. They hope it may prove useful as well to those who are just beginning to question their own gender identity, and to assure them that there is support available in the larger community.


TransGenderCare contains a large archive of health information that they have written and compiled from their years of directly providing medical, psychological, electrology, and general health services to our transgender community. Whether you need to make informed heath care decisions for yourself or wish to understand more about a friend or loved one, we hope you find their online transgender health center helpful. 

Transgender Day of Rememberance

The Transgender Day of Remembrance serves several purposes. It raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, an action that current media doesn't perform. Day of Remembrance publicly mourns and honors the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten. Through the vigil, we express love and respect for our people in the face of national indifference and hatred. Day of Remembrance reminds non-transgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers. Day of Remembrance gives our allies a chance to step forward with us and stand in vigil, memorializing those of us who've died by anti-transgender violence.

Trans Housing Network

Trans Housing Network is a space for trans folk to look for housing or post available trans-friendly housing.
