I can just about guarantee you that there is a community of trans, enby, and/or GNC folx in your area. You might be surprised by how many. I serve as a member of the Family Equality Council’s National Network, and am connected with a few LGBTQ group organizers in different states along the southeast. I’ll look into who’s in your area — maybe you could reach out to them for practical advice, if you’d like. One thing we do at lot of is help people, exactly like you, who are trying to start up LGBTQ community or online groups & programs. I’ll be back in touch.
