TransFamily Kingston

TransFamily Kingston is a group of transgender individuals and their family members and supporters in Kingston, Ontario. We have found that it can be very helpful to connect with other people who are on the same journey, either as a transgender person, or as a parent, sibling, spouse, child or friend of a trans person. This is not a professionally-run support group. It is a grassroots social network that seeks primarily to combat the loneliness and isolation often felt by trans people and those journeying with them.

Other Alternate Histories of Kingston  - Stones Project

Kingston’s nickname, “the Limestone City,” is a reference to the limestone buildings and bedrock upon which the city is built. The name “Stones” incorporates this element in addition to the idea that, as with stones themselves, communities and societies are only as strong as their individual parts. Stones, therefore, refers to the various cultural communities and human elements that form the foundations of Kingston.
