Details

Meetings / Initial Contact: For more information, register at the group’s meetup page: https://www.meetup.com/Knoxville-Transgender-Meetup/

Looking to meetup with others that are trans/gender non-comforming/nonbinary or under “the trans umbrella”. Trans folks of any stripe are welcome including those that are questioning or at any point in their journey. Looking for it to be a relaxed non-formal, non-judgemental atmosphere. Keep in mind we are NOT a dating/fetish/hookup Meetup group.

Group Guidelines:
-The group exists to disseminate information and resources; get connected to resources, and build community relationships. Please think critically about whether what you post belongs in this space or if it would be better suited to your personal page.
-Absolutely no hate speech. Explicit racism, transphobia, ableism, body shaming will result in being banned.
-This is a trans and gender non-conforming space. Allies and support people with direct relations to trans folks are permitted, but please consider how much space you take up as a cis person in a space focused on trans issues.
-Please keep post content safe for work/minors.
-This is a closed, private group. Please respect people’s privacy in this space by not sharing others’ content; adding people; or contacting people from the group without explicit permission.
-Please respect and support one another! If your posts are flagged, a moderator will reach out to you.

Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
