TransAction Florida was formed in 2014 by Equality Florida, the state’s largest LGBT advocacy organization, for the purpose of developing a statewide transgender inclusion initiative. This initiative was launched with three broad objectives: To educate Florida's major employers on effective transgender inclusion protocol, to advocate for the trans community in a broader and more structured way, and to be an integral part of all public policy that involved transgender rights. To achieve these, and even broader goals across the Sunshine State, we formed TransAction Florida, which consists of transgender community leaders from all parts of our state.
The need for quality health care and service providers for the transgender community has never been more in demand. Our community is emerging in rapid numbers, spanning all age groups. The Transgender Resource Guide has been developed to provide a directory of quality trans-friendly service providers from across the state. Our goal is that this will be a living resource guide that will be updated regularly.
