Transgender Support Groups Online for Support & help 2019

Transgender is an umbrella term used for people who are trans men and trans women which mean their gender identity is different from their assigned sex. It may also include people who are genderqueer or non-binary, including bigender, pangender and others too. Today a lot of communities and groups have advanced in supporting the rights of transgender but before they had to suffer a lot. They were often alienated by their friends and families with no organization or counselor to understand the changed they go through. It took time for people to accept their existence. Social awareness for the rights and problems faced by transgender has made a whole lot change in a positive way. We see various support groups, local communities and organizations participating to provide a platform and all the facilities to individual facing problem with gender identity.
