The DC Center

Event Type

The Trans Support Group is intended to provide emotionally and physically safe space for trans* people and those who may be questioning their gender identity/expression to join together in community and learn from one another.  We welcome all who identify under the trans* umbrella or are unsure, and seek to continually reinforce our principles of respect, acceptance and protection through ongoing input from our attendees.

We wish to stress the importance of a safe space where collectively, folks that identify along the trans spectrum or questioning may share stories and experiences.  We appreciate the ongoing support of allies, but ask that due to the vulnerable and sensitive nature of Trans support group, and out of respect for its attendees, allies may reach out to more appropriate channels better suited toward ally support.

We have two Trans Discussion Group meetings each month on the first Friday  and second Tuesday of the month starting at 7pm

We meet at The DC Center in the Reeves Municipal Building, 2000 14th St NW, Suite 105. Signs will be posted on the door for our group meeting.

Please note, you may be asked for a photo ID as you enter the Reeves Center. The Reeves Center staff have been trained and understand that photo ID’s may not match an individual’s gender expression. If this presents a challenge to you please call the DC Center as you arrive at (202) 682-2245 so that we can accommodate you.
See you there !

  1. I visited the DC center Friday, January 19 for a trans/gender queer game night. I showed my ID to the “female-presenting” guard. She returned my ID and said “Thank you, Ms Hill.” She’s referred to me in this manner other times I’ve visited the DC center and I’ve let it slide, but this particular evening I asked her “Why she continues to call me a “Ms” when clearly that’s not the gender I’m expressing!” She argued with me that “female” is what is on my ID and everyone is different and a bunch of other nonsense that I chose to ignore. I advised her to never refer to me as a a “Ms” again and I walked off. She continued mumbling and grumbling even after I had walked away. I didn’t realize I could report her behavior until now. She’s a nasty woman. I’ve always had issues with her. I haven’t been to the DC center since, but I plan on attending the trans support group this upcoming Friday and/or Tuesday. We’ll see what happens. Thank you.

    • Hi Jhey,
      I’m so sorry that this happened to you! My name is Chris Rothermel. If this happens again, please get the officer’s name and let me know. My e-mail address is I hope this doesn’t keep you from coming to the meetings.
      Thank you for reaching out to the DC Center for the LGBT Community!
