TransKentucky (formerly LexDGA) is a support, social, and resource group serving Lexington and the state of Kentucky as a whole. It is the mission of this group to provide a safe place for Transgender individuals and people who feel they do not fit into the standard gender norms to express their true selves. Within the group, such individuals can socialise with others without fear of judgement and/or ridicule. While the group is not therapeutic in nature, there are many resources and individuals that can provide help with advice and insights from their own unique experiences. Family and friends are invited and encouraged to attend meetings to gain understanding and be supportive of their loved ones. We also welcome supportive community members who have an interest in issues arising due to gender presentation, identity, and variance. The group meets on the first Saturday of each month at 7:30 pm in Lexington, KY. Please email for more information. Meetings are free and you may dress however you feel comfortable.
