OPEN 24/7

  Welcome to the Trans Chat Room.  This is where you can connect with other members who are online 24/7. Read below for how to navigate the chat features.    
Who's online?

If you wish to communicate with someone 1:1, simply click on the name of the user at the bottom of the list of chat groups.

Change Settings
To adjust the settings for the chat option, you can click on the three lines at the top of the chat box. This will bring you to your picture, handle name and the option to put yourself as online, away, invisible, busy or log out. From here you can also change the sound to on, minimized or off.
Creating a Friends list
To identify your friends quickly, you can click on their name under the user list. Once you put the cursor over their name, you have the option to click on a star which will list them in your "friends" list of users so you can quickly find out who is online that you know.
Initiate 1:1 text with another member
Initiate 1:1 text with another member. Click on the user you wish to chat with. You will see a chat bubble and if you click on this bubble, you will be able to initiate a 1:1 text with them, or anyone else online.
Change profile information
Change profile information. To change your profile picture or other profile details, click on the menu bar (three white lines on top of the chat box), then click on the profile picture.
Join or start a chat group
Join or start a chat group. There are five different chat group options. The first group is for all members, regardless of your gender identity or status. The other rooms are categorized by Transfeminine (MTF), Transmasculine (FTM), Spouses and Significant Others, and Non-Binary or Gender Fluid. Ideally, you can find a category that best fits your interests and identity. You are also able to be in more than one chat room at a time.
Chat Protocol


1. Every gender journey is unique; there is no RIGHT way to become who you really are. 


* Share YOUR experiences, support, resources, and sources of inspiration as freely as you wish.

* Use first person sharing: “I,”  or “My experience has been…” and never from “You should…” or “You need to…” etc.



2. This journey is difficult enough and every word, comment, or interaction we exchange with another either makes their life easier or more difficult. This forum strives to make life easier for those who read these words.


*When you share, do so with the intent to add value, comfort, support or relief to others.



3. Misinformation, generalizations, stereotypes, and opinions are easily misconstrued. We do not want to perpetuate false information or stereotypes that are not rooted in fact.


* If you provide resources and information that is not based on your own personal “I – statement” sharing, provide references and links to back up your information.



4. This space is co-created. Every word added to the TG Chat and TG Forum is a contribution to this site, and it will either add value, or it will diminish the value of this forum. This forum is designed to add value to your gender journey.


* Share only that which adds value when you contribute to this forum. 



5. Participants in the TG Chat and TG Forum are all on a journey of their own toward accepting their own, or their loved one’s true gender. This is not therapy or crisis help. This is not an appropriate place to lean on others to take care of you in ways that extend beyond the forum, chat or online video support group. You can expect a kind ear, a helpful story about another’s own experience, information about useful resources, links, books, and provider information, or general inspiration to encourage you on your journey.


* This is not a place to offer or request help outside of the words exchanged on this forum.


* If you are in crisis, here is a list of available resources to call or chat with online right now.
