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!

The T-HOUSE website was specifically developed to serve Male-to-Female (MTF) and Female-to-Male (FTM) Transgender persons residing in Broward County. The MISSION of T-HOUSE is to benefit Transgender and gender-questioning residents of Broward County by: (1) Providing quality information regarding HIV testing, HIV/AIDS related services and providers; (2) Providing problem-resolution and service-linkage assistance regarding service access; (3) Providing important Transgender community information regarding events, activities and news features, and; (4) Providing a central internet site where members of the local Transgender community post their comments and feedback. The VALUES of T-HOUSE assert that: (1) All Transgender and gender-questioning persons who are eligible for Ryan White funded services should possess quality barrier-free service access, and; (2) All such persons deserve to receive services in a manner that both respectfully acknowledges and accommodates their self-expressed gender identity.
