ABOUT US

Who We Are

By Trans for Trans – Bringing together the Transgender Community in the St. Louis metro area.

There are so many different Transgender support, advocacy, educational, and ally groups here in the metro area, and the Metro Trans Umbrella Group wishes to unite us all. We are such a large community, and with all these resources scattered, it can be difficult to find the much needed information & support. By coming together, we can easily mend the resource gaps and provide community and support for each other. Whether you are a part of another group or are wishing to find a sense of community, MTUG strives to support all individuals that fall under the “Umbrella term” of Trans which includes, but is not limited to: Transsexuals (FtM, MtF), genderqueer, androgynous, agender, intersex, drag, and questioning.

Brief History

Shortly after Saint Louis Pride in 2013, the need for a larger Trans presence was noted by Sayer, Alex, and Rae. After a passionate discussion of hopes and desires for the Metro Trans community, MTUG was formed.

Vision

To unite the Trans community and promote education and visibility in the Saint Louis metro area.
