Westchester Trans Forum


The Westchester Trans Forum hosted by The LOFT: LGBT Community Services is an annual event for our local transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) communities, allies, and health and human service providers. The goal is to provide a safe space for discussion, sharing and learning related to the needs of persons of trans experience.
