Chats

General

T-Vox has its own Chat Room, but it’s not the only one. The following is a comprehensive, but possibly not exhaustive, list of other Transgender/intersex/genderqueer chat facilities. If you have an IRC client installed already, simply click the IRC link to join the chat, where available.

 
LGBT Reddit
For all LGBT people. Definitely Trans-friendly, and you don’t need to be a Reddit user to chat there. IRC. Channel ##lgbtreddit on irc.freenode.net.
IRC: irc://irc.freenode.net/%23%23lgbtreddit

 
TG Chat
For all Trans people. IRC and Java. Channel #tgchat on irc.blitzed.org.
URL: http://tgchat.co.uk/
IRC: irc://blitzed.org/tgchat

 
Trans
Trans chat. IRC. Channel ##trans on irc.freenode.net.
IRC: irc://irc.freenode.net/%23%23trans

 
Transcord
For Trans and gender-questioning people and their allies. Discord. Has options for both text and voice chat.
URL: http://discordapp.com/channels/131162550212493312/131162550212493312

 
Yay for Queers Chat
For all respectful people. Mostly Trans folk, some cis folks as well. IRC and Java. Channel #yayforqueers on irc.blitzed.org.
Please be patient! Yay for Queers is not a constant bustling hive of activity. If you wait 30 seconds or a minute and then give up, you are unlikely to get any conversation. The longer you stay in the chat, the more likely you are to talk to people. Everyone’s very friendly and supportive and it’s well worth hanging out there.

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.

Parents/Family/Children

Rainbows At Play
Online community for parents and caregivers of gender-nonconforming children. New as of February 2014.
How to join:
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.
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.
Go to http://rainbows.Lefora.com/ and fill out the application.
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.
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.
Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
Spread the word and the sparkle.
