Transgender and nonbinary services

All of The San Diego LGBT Community Center’s programs are transgender and nonbinary inclusive and supportive, and we also offer services designed specifically for the transgender and nonbinary community through Project TRANS, our Transgender and Nonbinary Services Program. Project TRANS  stands for Transgender Referrals, Assistance, Networking and Services. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many of The Center’s services are virtual. Please reach out to for specific information during this time, or see calendar below.



Engagement opportunities include social activities and discussion groups, presentations by various speakers, workshops via Zoom, and more.


Programs to promote individual wellness, quality of life, and building community like Peer to Peer support, 1:1 check-ins, legal support and partnerships, networking services, youth services, advocacy, referrals, outreach, sensitivity trainings, and more.

Critical Services

Critical health and social-support services, and collaborations with other support agencies, including HIV prevention and navigation services, connections to behavioral health and mental health services, connections to housing, name and gender marker change support, referrals to LGBTQ  partners for housing and employment discrimination issues. 

HIV Testing & Education

The Center’s Sexual Health & Wellness program offers rapid HIV testing for individuals and couples, prevention support, healthcare linkage, education and resource referrals. We utilize 4thGen rapid testing technology using the Determine HIV-1/2 antibody/antigen test and offer enrollment in the UCSD Early Test study which can detect acute (very early stage) HIV infection as soon as one week after potential exposure.

Group and individual counseling is offered to both offenders and survivors struggling with relationship violence. The Center's RVTIP is certified by the County of San Diego Probation Department and provides a 52-week group counseling intervention for voluntary as well as court-mandated individuals to receive treatment for same-gender/genderqueer relationship violence. Groups include: Men’s Group, Women’s Group, and Transgender & Nonbinary Group. A weekly Relationship Violence Survivor’s Support Group – All Genders is offered as well.
