Inclusion Team Greater/Grand Sudbury Police 

The Greater Sudbury Police Service, in partnership with TG Innerselves, are excited to unveil the production of “Creating Awareness and Understanding of the Transgender Community”.

This video is the result of a year and a half collaborative effort between the Greater Sudbury Police Service and the transgender community in North Eastern Ontario.

The purpose of the video is to provide your organization with information and points of discussion as your members reflect on their interactions with the transgender community and the opportunities for relationship building that lead to strong partnerships.

The video is accompanied by a Lesson Plan, Power Point Presentation and Speakers Notes

FTM Early Transitioning

This Yahoo group is for persons who are in the female-to-male transitioning process, particularly the early stages when much is happening and much is still unresolved. Men who are farther along in transition are welcome, also, so that we may have the benefit of your experience. Membership is restricted to FTMs only. Applications for MTF transsexuals will be denied, as well as significant others of FTMs. Don't even apply if you are just trolling.

On-Topic subjects include (but are not limited to): hormone therapy, SRS, relationships with family and significant others, and role, lifestyle, and psychological adjustment/acceptance.

This is NOT a place for pickups, spam, or advertisements for FTM transition products (or anything else, for that matter). However, in seeming contradiction, how-to's on (and experiences with) picking up, socializing, and "coming out", as well as product comparisions and posting of helpful websites is encouraged.

This is the main group for FTM Early Transitioning. FtM_Early-Transitioning is the group that houses the archives for this list. Archives will remain available on the FtM_Early-Transitioning group. If you would like to join the archive list, please send an email to the group owner here. Membership on the archive list is by invitation only.
