Transgender Group

Sign up for our latest updates today




Our transgender group is for all transgender, intersex and gender non-conforming people, our partners and allies residing in and around the Great Lakes Bay Region. We strive to create a safe place for transgender people and their allies to meet for open dialogue, educational opportunities, and socializing. This is a vibrant community group that enjoys getting together to learn, grow, and have fun together.

In-person meetings are resuming as of November 5 as state orders allow. Participants are required to complete a health questionnaire upon arrival.

We meet on the first Thursday and third Saturday of each month at Unity of Bay City (3736 State Street Rd, Bay City, MI 48706) from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
