Intro to Chicago Gender Society (CGS):

Thank you for visiting our site. We hope that you will find the information you are searching for!

The Chicago Gender Society (CGS) was founded 30 years ago for transgender education and support. CGS continues to provide a safe place for people to explore their gender identity.  We do this through our monthly meetings, socials and events. If you are new to the community, CGS meetings provide our members and guests an opportunity to network with other individuals exploring similar feelings and provide educational programs from experts in the fields of interest to our members.  Our monthly socials provide an evening out with members and friends in a public environment.  Our events range from a golf outing, an evening of bowling, to a grand Holiday Party.
