Gender Diversity & Intersex Centre of Expertise (former Trans Support Center / Transtukipiste) offers its services to all trans and intersex persons, to those pondering their gender and to their loved ones. We are located at Seta’s office at Pasila (Pasilanraitio 5, 2nd floor). All services offered by the Gender Diversity & Intersex Centre of Expertise, including peer support group meetings and different forms of counseling, are strictly confidential.
There is a dressing space at the office where it is possible to change and do your make up. The space is available during opening hours and on group nights (approximately half an hour before the group starts, when the group instructor arrives).
At the Gender Diversity & Intersex Centre of Expertise we respect the clients´ self definition of their gender and of their sexual orientation, of their family and of who are their significant others. The services are free of charge and no referral is required. You may also use a pseudonym, if you wish. Please do not hesitate to contact us. You can make a reservation for yourself, member(s) of your family or other important persons in your life.
