Being cisgender and partnered with someone who identifies as transgender can bring up a unique mix of questions, concerns and experiences, that you may not feel comfortable talking about with the people in your life.

This free monthly support group offers a space for you to do just that. The SPOT is a place to find community, connection, and open communication with others who understand this experience. This group is open to people ages 18 and up. We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 7-8:30pm

To register, simply contact Sarah Gilbert at 860-884-8372 or email her at

Upcoming meeting dates: Thurs  Jan 10th 2019, and Feb 14th 2019
