Transcend Mission and Purpose

Transcend is a Texas State student group for transgender, non-binary and all gender diverse students and their Allies.  This student organization gives transgender, non-binary and all gender diverse students and their Allies an opportunity to come together to share experiences and to support each other at Texas State around issues related to gender identity and expression.   The students and advisors of Transcend also work to promote equity and diversity of gender at Texas State through activities, events, and advocacy. Texas State University has a non-discrimination statement that includes gender identity and expression, and the students and advisors in Transcend at Texas State work to continue manifesting the spirit of that non-discrimination statement throughout the campus so that transgender, non-binary and all gender diverse students are affirmed and nurtured at Texas State.  If you are transgender, non-binary or gender diverse and have questions about navigating life at Texas State, please join us at one of our meetings or contact us at transgender@txstate.edu.

 

Transcend 2016 Award Winner

Transcend BOKO Award 2016

Transcend Clothing Closet

Transcend Clothing Closet

Transcend has a Clothing Closet that takes donations of gently used clothes of all styles, sizes, and shapes (Clothes DON'T have GENDERS; people do!).  Many college students who are gender diverse are looking for new ways to express their identity and don't have the financial resources or freedom to buy new wardrobes.  Our clothing closet allows students to come try on different styles and expressions and to take home what they need and want.  If you would like to donate or to come try on clothes, please e-mail transgender@txstate.edu to make an appointment.
