The aim of Transgender Resource Center

Transgender Resource Center (TGR), is founded on 1 July 2008.  We are committed to promote the awareness of transgender population and related service in Hong Kong and mainland China. Begin with education, we provide information and resources to the public and to the transgender community. This helps our society to have a better understanding of transgender issues, and allow transgender people to get proper assistance.

Before TGR was registered as a society, we have always been actively involved in sharing our experience about gender issues in universities of Hong Kong.  Until now, we have organized and participated in nearly three hundred seminars and workshops.   We also participated in interviews on radio, television, magazines, newspapers and other media and presenting a positive transgender identity in public. We have always been in close contact and cooperation with the the government, the health sector, legal institutions, counseling team, Christian organizations and other services.

TGR’s work is mainly divided into three parts: community service, public education and research. We hold a monthly gathering, so that transgender people have adequate space to help and care for each other.  This is also a space for transgender friendly people to have means to reach out and support our groups.
