In the Dayton area, an active support group for transgender, non-conforming, non-binary and allies is the Gatlyn Dame Group. The group gathers for discussion once per month and schedules a monthly social event, as well. Attendance for the discussion gathering may average 25 or so persons of various identities, backgrounds, and ages. Parents of non-conforming kids, medical professionals, lgbt activists and others are countered as allies that are active participants. Social events are intended to be family-friendly and have included picnics, a trip to the Air Force Museum, and visits to different restaurants. Check their website for meeting times, locations, and contact information.
Active support groups are also located in Columbus and Cincinnati. TransOhio is located in Columbus. Crossport and Cincinnati Trans Community Group are in the Cincinnati area.
