Trans Teens Oline Talk Group

The GLBT National Help Center is a 20 year-old non-profit organization, which operates, among other programs, the GLBT National Youth Talkline.

 They are excited to announce that they have launched a new transgender youth program called the Trans Teens Online Talk Group.

On their national hotline, they receive calls from trans youth from all across the country who don’t have access to any local resources and are feeling severely isolated and alone.  To meet this need, they have expanded their services for trans youth through a new moderated online talk group, helping to end isolation and loneliness for trans youth.  They’re hoping you might be able to help them spread the world about the Trans Teens Online Talk Group.

The Trans Teens Online Talk Group is a live, moderated group chat for trans youth ages 12 thru 19, operating each Wednesday from 4-6 pm, pacific time (7-9pmeastern time).  It is available at

This new program is designed to be a safe place that allows trans youth to talk freely about concerns and issues, with others their own age, providing support for one another, and helping each other know they are not alone.

The GLBT National Help Center hopes you will be able to help them spread the word on this new exciting program that helps to make life easier for isolated transgender youth from all across the country
