Marsha's Tea Room

TGNC health and awareness

Mission

Marsha's Tea Room is a nonprofit organization centered on promoting the overall health and well-being of Transgender and Gender Nonconforming People. We are located in Spectrum: The Other Clinic that specializes in hormone therapy for TGNC community. We are meant to be a safe space for members of the LGBTQ community and allies to socialize and provide education to the community. Our main objective is to promote the health and welfare of the transgender community.

Purpose

Sylvia's Porch

Tea Room

A safe place to hang out with community resources. I know it needs a lot of work. Thanks to all of you who have helped us make this dream a reality.


Why?

It's the right thing to do. Marsha P. Johnson protested in 1970 as a counterprostester at the Gay Liberation Front protest at Bellevue Hospital for transgender rights. How far have we come as a society to recognize transgender rights as human rights?
