Northwest Gender Alliance
The NWGA was formed in the spring of 1980, by a small group of transgendered people who longed for a safe environment to learn about themselves. Even in the open-minded community of Portland, Oregon, transgender people lived with a significant degree of caution and concern, due to the lack of public understanding towards the community. Today, thanks in part to NWGA and many of its members, the public has had an opportunity to learn what the transgender umbrella is and is not. There is still confusion and non-acceptance on the part of many, so NWGA endeavors to educate people..

Essentially a gathering is an opportunity for transgender, two-spirit, gender-queer, gender-variant, intersexed people and allies to share their spiritual journey and open a dialog for deeper expressions of faith, fundamental understanding of our existence and the discovery of how our journeys of gender and spirit are intertwined.
