If you know of a social/support group, a transformation service, or an organization in your state that would be of interest to our community, please drop me a line with that information and links and I will be happy to post it!
Project Unity at Crossdresser Heaven is also an amazing resource!

Milwaukee LGBT Community Center
From their website:
The Milwaukee LGBT Community Center is dedicated to serving the needs of LGBTQ people and to making the Greater Milwaukee area safer and more inclusive. We focus on anti-violence, healthy relationships, counseling, Youth & Elder Adult programming and more. Our Center’s resources include a lending library with over 2000 LGBT titles, meeting space for over 100 groups during the year, computer/internet access and referrals.
The MKE LGBT Community Center offers meeting spaces, a food pantry, and a clothing closet, among other resources.
From their website:
Brad and Nick Schlaikowski founded Courage MKE in 2015 with a mission to fuel a collaborative movement to provide the resources LGBTQ+ youth need to thrive. After their family fostered teens and learned of their struggles. They made it their mission to build something better for our most vulnerable.
In 2019 Courage MKE opened Wisconsin’s first home for displaced LGBTQ+ youth. Courage MKE believes that in order for youth to work on themselves, they must be able to be themselves. The Courage House is a licensed group home on Milwaukee’s south side. Our Staff, Board and Volunteers are committed to creating an environment in which each resident feels like they are a part of the entire Courage MKE Family. At the Courage House, we assist residents with counseling, life skills, family reunification, and provide them the same experiences every child deserves in a family setting.
Courage hosts different events and offers a safe and supportive environment for LGBTQ+ youth.
TG Miss was established in 2005 by Melisa Amy Ellis the owner. Melisa was to say at least ”fanatical” about taking great photos of herself. She invested a great deal of time and money into equipment, wardrobe, makeup and training. As she flourished in her craft of male to female transformation, it became evident that she could help others. By helping others she was able perfect her craft while providing a revenue stream to invest in better equipment and more feminine treasures.
When Melisa invited the first visitor to the TG Miss studio, the original goal was and remains the same today; to give clients “the best girl day of your life”. The studio has been referred to as a “theme park for cross-dressers” by more than one client. Like any good theme park, the attractions keep getting better and better. We understand the difficulty many people have committing large portions of their income to their “special hobby”. To help with costs, the staff at TG Miss does not take a regular salary. The funds collected go to cover the considerable overhead that goes into maintaining and upgrading a studio of this size.

Thank you for highlighting Outreach, Hannah. A support group I’m part of has its regular meetings at Outreach, and have contributed to a name change document for trans/GNC people. Without a doubt, Outreach supports our community greatly, not to mention their offices are a welcoming places for all.
That’s great for Milwaukee, but what about me. I live on top of Wisconsin near Superior Wisconsin which is very near to Duluth MN
If there a group that I can meet with near me
Any suggestions, Wisconsin T-Girls?
