The DC Area Transmasculine Society is a peer-facilitated social and support group in the Washington, DC area for anyone on the transmasculine spectrum. This includes persons born or assigned female at birth and feel that this is an inaccurate or incomplete description of who we are today.

DCATS also welcomes any and all trans-identifying persons, significant others, friends, families, and allies.

DCATS is a diverse group

The term "transmasculine" is core to the DCATS spirit of inclusiveness and part of our history. We acknowledge, welcome, and celebrate the wide range of transgender identities that our members have.

We recognize the full spectrum of gender identity, sexual identity, and gender expression. We also honor each and every person's use of personal pronouns.

What we provide

  • A monthly support group.
  • An e-mail list that provides a space for anyone to ask questions, share resources, and get more information and support. We have several hundred members from varied backgrounds on the list.
  • Social events such as a monthly Happy Hour.
  • Presence and visibility at community Pride events.


DCATS seeks to be as accessible as possible for all of our members.

Meetings will always be held in a space that is ADA compliant and we are always happy to accommodate a member or potential member's needs.

Sign language interpreters are available upon advance request.
