Transgender Victoria (TGV) was founded in the late 1990s to achieve justice, equity and quality health and community service provision for trans and gender diverse (TGD) people, their partners, families and friends.
This includes those who identify as trans, transgender, transsexuals, genderqueer, cross-dressers and all other people whose gender identity or expression is different from that which was assigned at birth or that which is expected of them by society.
TGV would like TGD people to have the same quality of services as others in the community, and to be able to feel comfortable to seek health care and support when they need it.
TGV acknowledges that this goal will only be met in tandem with greater awareness about TGD people and their lives. The needs of TGD people will be better met when there is a greater support for both gender equality and a healthy respect for gender diversity within our communities.
