We are excited to announce three new groups that are beginning this year.

Trans Community Group

Held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays from 7:30-9:00 pm at The Spahr Center in our new upstairs space.

Let’s build a trans family in Marin! We will be holding a community group for transgender and nonbinary adults beginning February 11th. We have heard from numerous people across the county that there is no sense of community in Marin for trans people, and we are out to change that! The group provides space for people to gather together and be together—the facilitators and folks who attend will determine what meeting format feels right! For now—if you are looking to be with other trans and nonbinary people who live in the county, we hope to see you there! When you come into Spahr, take the elevator to the second floor and you’ll find the group! Suzanne Ford, board member of both The Spahr Center and SF Pride, and Jordan Decker, founder of Trans Heartline will be facilitating.

Trans Community Group: 2nd and 4th Tuesdays from 7:30-9:00 at the Spahr Center in the upstairs room.

Marin Queer and Trans Support Group

Held on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays from 7-9 pm at the Spahr Center

This group was founded by two Marin County residents, Henry Inman and Se McCarty to create a space for LGBTQ+ people of all ages to come together for support. They have been facilitating the group at the Stinson Beach Library and have gotten attendees from all across the county! We are so excited to join forces and begin offering this group at The Spahr Center beginning in March!

This group is for all ages and is open to anyone who is queer, trans, or questioning. For more information on the group, including their community agreements and FAQ, visit marinqueers.com or visit them on Instagram at @marinqueers.

Discussion Group for Family and Friends of LGBTQ+ Youth

Held on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays from 11-1 at The Spahr Center in the atrium.

This group is a welcoming and safe place to discuss how best to support our queer and trans kids, ask questions, seek help, and offer support. We will speak openly and respectfully about our experiences to find the best paths for ourselves and for others. Come express your feelings, find and give support, and get the information we all need! It is facilitated by Grace Marshall, member of the Youth Advocacy Coalition, and Andrea Coughlan, mother of two LGBTQ kids.

Please RSVP if you intend to come, or reach out with questions, to Andrea at a.coughlan777@gmail.com.
