Email Discussion Groups

Melbourne Girls
The Melbourne Girls tgirl group is designed to keep local tgirls in touch with one and other. It doesnt matter whether they are 'at home' tgirls or are 'out and about' on the town tgirls. Our members discuss all aspects of being TG but our emphasis is on the exchange of information on and about being a tgirl in Victoria.
Membership is required to participate.

Transgender Surgery
The aim of this group is to assist those of a transsexual nature to fulfill their physical transition steps by way of various types of surgery. We discuss related surgeons, and share our plans, results and degree of satisfaction with each other. It's a group for those having lived a reasonable time in their chosen gender, with a substantial need and desire to remain in their transitioned status, whether as women, or as men. These are permanent physical changes that typically involve major various surgeries, sizable expense, and possibly long recoveries. Membership is required to participate.
