All trans, genderqueer, and questioning people are welcome in this space. FtM, MtF, agender, genderqueer, and any other trans identities are also welcome. Minors are welcome to attend with or without a parent or guardian. Parents and guardians are welcome to stay with their child if necessary.
Coffee, tea and beer (for those who are 21+) will be available. The space can be used to play board games, network, or simply hang out. A representative from FtM A2 Ypsi will be there to provide resources, answer questions or talk.
FtM A2 Ypsi is a support group by and for trans-masculine people in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and the greater Southeast Michigan region. The organization is open to all trans-masculine identified (and questioning) people 16 years of age or older. It doesn’t matter if you are, are not, or never plan to transition physically. The group aims to build community among local trans men and to create a safe space where they can support one another. They are affiliated with FtM Detroit, and they cross-program for social events.
