Trans specialists; help for crossdressers as well as transsexuals.
NOT RECOMMENDED. Has a highly archaic and rigid view of what transsexuals should be, and will deny care to those who don't fit their mould. Advocates things like reparative therapy to 'cure' Trans people. (Please note: This does not work, even if you - and they - would like it to. Transgender feelings cannot be made to properly go away; they can only be squelched and repressed, which causes tremendous psychological and emotional stress and will eventually stop working. The longer the repression lasts, the more painful and difficult it is when it stops working.)
