T-House, an online transgender center, launched by Broward County Health Department

T-House is "a digital drop-in center serving the transgender community.'' The focus is HIV/AIDS prevention and providing links and online resources to the transgender community.

Here are a few items from the website:

Welcome Transgender Brothers/Sisters and Supporters!

My name is Victoria Michaels Lavelle and I am your Miss Florida 2008 representing the LGBT Community across our state.   We are very fortunate to have such a large and beautifully diverse Transgender Community here in Broward County – one that is growing quickly.  I am so excited to be a spokesperson for my peers who reside here in Broward County and I have high hopes that our community will have the ability to grow bigger, better, and stronger!
I strive to bring our Transgender community together and encourage my TS Brothers & TS Sisters, as well their friends and family, to join together in providing our community with valuable information and expanded access to available services.  As a mentor to my younger transgender peers, I have been inspired by their many stories to help create a better living environment for the Transgender community by helping guide them in the right direction – to live strong and beautiful lives!
