We here at TransGeorgia are especially interested in resources for trans people all over the southeastern US. This page is for linking to other sites of regional interest. Since we are not located in these states, it is very important that you update information for these groups if you know that the information is out of date, or the group has ceased to exist. If you do not feel comfortable updating this information yourself, please email Connor Gillis directly at email@example.com with the corrections that need to be made.

The Robert Eads Memorial Health Project
The REMHP helps trans people in the SE US find healthcare providers in their area. They're based out of Ashville, NC http://remhp.org/default.aspx
Tranzmission started about six years ago as a result of transgender people in a certain community not having their name or pronoun respected, so they organized to "end socially enforced gender tyranny." Tranzmission puts out zines, does healthcare fundraising, holds Trans 101 workshops at community centers, nonprofits, universities, conferences, and religious establishments, has taught self-defense classes for trans people, does punk rock drag shows, and helps to organize Asheville's Stonewall Commemorative Day. One of their major projects is a queer trans prison support project. Members of Tranzmission send books to and are pen pals for queer and trans people in prison. Tranzmission is member-driven. Goals for the group include collaborating with other groups, increasing the diversity of their membership, starting a transgender health fund, creating a health clinic in the Southeast that addresses trans people's health needs, and continuing to build community and celebrate trans culture.
