Gender Rebels - Transgender Support Group

The goal of this support group hosted by Bakersfield's Center for Sexuality & Gender Diversity is to provide individuals who identify as or are questioning, being transgender or gender nonconforming with a safe place to come together and discuss their life experiences and receive support. In addition to exploring a trans identity, participants will be encouraged to explore the ways their multiple identities intersect to create their unique perspectives as well which should be celebrated.  The group meets on Thursday evenings. During the global pandemic, the group is conducted online via Zoom. To join, contact The Center 661-843-7995 or 661-404-5209 or email
