FTM HIV Prevention
This group is primarily intended to be a discussion forum for FTMs who work in HIV prevention. The list purpose is dual: this will be a professional and activist support group for those of us who are FTM somehow, working in a field where as a population of concern and as individuals we may be invisible. This list is also an expertise-sharing pool for work happening in various places around preventing the transmission of HIV in FTMs, especially efforts coming from within our own communities.
This group is open to FTMs, Transgender men, men of transsexual experience, Trans guys, and other identities in this constellation, whose work or primary volunteer commitments are in the field of HIV prevention. Foundational agreements for this list: confidentiality; harm reduction; the inclusion of positive prevention; and respect for the gender identities and expressions of those on the list. A working assumption is that there are FTMs on the list who are HIV+.
Membership is moderated, so while members may use anonymous names/email addresses, the confidential application process will require details (city/region, job title, agency or program, preferred identity wording) in order to keep the group focused. An intro to the group should be posted shortly after joining. The moderator may be contacted directly at queerftmgroup@hotmail.com.

FTM HIV Prevention
This group is primarily intended to be a discussion forum for FTMs who work in HIV prevention. The list purpose is dual: this will be a professional and activist support group for those of us who are FTM somehow, working in a field where as a population of concern and as individuals we may be invisible. This list is also an expertise-sharing pool for work happening in various places around preventing the transmission of HIV in FTMs, especially efforts coming from within our own communities.
This group is open to FTMs, Transgender men, men of transsexual experience, Transguys, and other identities in this constellation, whose work or primary volunteer commitments are in the field of HIV prevention. Foundational agreements for this list - confidentiality; harm reduction; the inclusion of positive prevention; respect for the gender identities and expressions of those on the list. A working assumption is that there are FTMs on the list who are HIV+.
Membership is moderated, so while members may use anonymous names/e-mail addresses, the confidential application process will require details (city/region, job title, agency or program, preferred identity wording) in order to keep the group focused. An intro to the group should be posted shortly after joining. The moderator may be contacted directly at queerftmgroup@hotmail.com.

GenderQueer Revolution
Have you ever felt ...
Like M, F, or even FTM and MTF aren't enough? Or that your gender changes by the minute, hour, day, or season?
That maybe you were meant to have more than one gender?
Ever feel that your gender isn't so clear cut? (Or that it falls right off the map?)
Tired of hearing, "You're just confused," when you already know who you are, or, you're comfortable with not knowing? Ever wish they would just stop asking when you're going to start hormones, have surgery, and "transition," with the assumption that these terms automatically apply to you? (They might, but that doesn't give others the right to assume.)
Our stories tell us that genderqueer people need a safe haven, a uniquely genderqueer, gender-defying, gender-gifted, non-binary space. Here, no one will force you to choose a label. No one will oppose weekly, daily, or even hourly changes of name, pronouns, gender identity, gender expression, or style. You can choose to "wear" any gender configuration, revel in confusion, by choice or by circumstance, or not. Here, "genderqueer" does not mean "Trans." It may, but it doesn't have to.

TransDude.com
Non-commercial online community for Transmen, FTMs, genderqueers, and their allies (and anyone questioning their gender ID), ages 13 and up, to discuss issues related to gender and sexuality. This space is about building community with a group of folks who have few spaces to call our own. It is intended to be supportive of the many flavours, stripes and speckles of the FTM experience. The group acknowledges and values the fact that there is no “right way” to be a Transman, and looks forward to engaging within the diversity of backgrounds, experiences and opinions of Transguys from around the globe. Members are expected to act in accordance with this mission. Passionate, honest and challenging discussion is encouraged. Combative, insulting or silencing comments will not be tolerated. It boils down to “play nice in our playground so that everyone feels comfortable joining in.” Help build community.

Parents/Family/Children

Rainbows At Play
Online community for parents and caregivers of gender-nonconforming children. New as of February 2014.
How to join:

  1. You must be a primary caregiver of a differently gendered child. If you are not raising a child, please don’t join the community. Help us keep Rainbows At Play kiddos and families safe by only joining if you are an adult primary caregiver. We will post updates to our blogs about Rainbows At Play that will allow others to join in on the joy and happiness of the community. You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates and fun peeks into the Rainbows At Play community. We hate to be exclusive, unwelcoming and uninviting. We hope you understand why we have to be when it comes to this very special project.
  2. If you don’t already have a Lefora.com membership, go there and create an account so that you can access communities, groups and forums hosted by Lefora.
  3. Go to http://rainbows.Lefora.com/ and fill out the application.
  4. Be patient. Initially, Kelly and Lori will be reviewing all applications themselves. We hope to have so many families apply that it takes us a few days to get to new applications. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? The more who join, the better your odds of finding a local playdate mate and family just like yours.
  5. Once you are accepted into the community, read the “Rules and Guidelines” and “Getting Started” topics found at the top of the Community’s homepage.
  6. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  7. Spread the word and the sparkle.
