The DC Area Transmasculine Society is a peer-facilitated social and support group in the DC area for anyone on the transmasculine spectrum. We are persons born or assigned female at birth and feel that this is an inaccurate or incomplete description of who we are today.
DCATS also welcomes significant others, friends, families, and allies (SOFFAS)
Donations help DCATS run this website, attend Pride events, and generally function. All contributions are greatly appreciated!
January 2014 Meeting
Our meeting next weekend will be our (somewhat) annual Top Surgery Show and Tell meeting.
We realise that SOFFAs are often caregivers during surgery recovery, and their help can make a world of difference. At the same time, sharing surgery results is very personal, and we want to do our best to make the folks who are sharing as comfortable as possible. As such, we ask that only those SOFFAs who have served as caregivers, or who may be caregivers in the future, attend this meeting. Thank you for your understanding.
We will also be having a clothes swap this meeting. Please see the list serve announcements for further details.
DCATS t-shirts are still available!
Available in small-XXL for $15, which goes to supporting DCATS. We'll have them available after the monthly meetings.
Big Brother Program
DCATS is running a mentorship program to pair people newer to identifying as trans/genderqueer with more experienced folks. Open to all kinds of folks - transitioning or not. Drop a line to email@example.com with a bit about yourself and whether you want to be a mentor or mentee.
Who we are
DCATS is a diverse group. The term "transmasculine" is core to DCATS' spirit of inclusiveness. We acknowledge, welcome, and celebrate the wide range of transgender identities that our members have. Our members include:
- trans men
- drag kings
- gender questioning
- gender variant
- ... and more.
We run a monthly support group on the second Sunday of every month, in addition to our yahoo! list-serve and social events throughout the year.
