TransQ of Barrie Simcoe

Purpose

We are a peer support group for Transgender, Non Binary, Two Spirit & Gender Diverse people. We started as Gender Journeys program that met at the Gilbert Centre in Barrie Ontario, and almost a decade later we are still meeting today. As of May 5 2022; we are resuming in-person meetings at the Gilbert Centre weekly on Thursdays from 7-9 pm & will host virtual meetings at the same time.

What we've done

We are an active group, and in addition to meeting regularly we also have hosted marches in Downtown Barrie; and hosted flag raisings for Transgender Day of Visibility, Transgender Day of Remembrance, and International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Transphobia & Intersexism. We also have a county-wide binder swap program in partnership with Fierté Simcoe Pride.
