The Transbefrienders Story

About Us

Recognising the lack of peer support for youths with gender dysphoria (also known as transgender youth), Transbefrienders was started in 2019, by a group of volunteers from various backgrounds who have experienced living with gender dysphoria in Singapore.
 

We a registered non-profit organisation providing appropriate information and emotional support to guide transgender youths in their transitioning journey. We also act as an intermediary support for folks going through the healthcare system in Singapore to manage suicidal ideation and prevent suicide attempts.

 

We have since grown to include gender-diverse individual and youths-at-heart in our support.
