Gender Education, Advocacy & Resources (GEAR) is a program of Resource Center founded in 2005, as the first formalized transgender program sponsored by a major LGBTQ organization in North Texas. GEAR is dedicated to empowering transgender people through advocacy, support and medical services. While all transgender adults can call for resources, the program's emphasis is on serving young adults ages 18-29.
Support Group (18-29)
Young Adult Gender Identity Group meets every Tuesday at 6-7 p.m. at the new Resource Center (5750 Cedar Springs Rd., Dallas 75235). This group is led by SMU's Center for Family Counseling.
