Urgent: TGR has no more operational fund after SEPT!
For 10 years long, Transgender Resource Center unconditionally and wholeheartedly serves, devotes and voices for transgender communities in Hong Kong and mainland China. We’ve helped to change the way Hong Kong society regards Transgender individuals, and have worked so hard in promoting Gender Recognition Ordinance and Anti-discrimination Ordinance. Currently, we start to work on marriage equality.
Late last year, a kind-hearted friend graciously granted us a place for 10 months, this marked us a brave step and milestone in serving Hong Kong LGBT friends as well as helping numerous sexual minority individuals. Due to an overwhelming amount of important works and services, coupled with the unsuccessful funding applications, we basically have no operating funds to continue working on the rest of the very important tasks after September! We can only struggle to maintain a tiny office and a few of works.
Therefore, I hereby call on everyone to spread out this message, to donate as much as you can, as much as you wish. Even the smallest contribution can make a great impact and means so much to us! Hope that we can at least raised a minimum of HKD$100,000 before the end of November! Thank you very much!

Relocation Notice 搬遷啟示
Time flies, our center located in Station Lane, Whampoa had been opened for more than 11 months. We had made an agreement when receiving the property with the donor to hand it back to the landlord at the expiration of the tenancy in September 2018. On 9th September, we have already moved to a smaller office in San Po Kong. Due to the application of funding last year not going smoothly. Also, an increase in deploying human resources into the center operation, the fundraising event cannot be held as scheduled. As a result, we are currently lacking funds and basically running the center without staffs but volunteers. Therefore, the new center is not going to open often. If you want to visit us, please kindly make an early appointment.
The new Center address and contact information are listed below:
Address: Room 42, 11/F, Lee Ka Industrial Building, 8 Ng Fong Street, San Po Kong
How to get here: Approx. 7 minutes walk from Diamond Hill MTR Station Exit A2/Approx. 5 minutes walk from Sze Mei Street Bus Terminus

LGBT Community Mental Health Research Report series
Earlier studies have consistently documented sexual orientation disparities in mental health, with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals being at greater risk of poor mental health than cisgender heterosexual individuals. The Chinese University of Hong Kong The Chinese University of Hong Kong conducted research that studies the disparities in mental health of LGBT individuals (incl. lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals) and cisgender heterosexual individuals in 2017 with an aim to examine mental health of LGBT individuals in Hong Kong and identify protective and risk factors that contribute to their mental health outcomes.
