WELCOME!

We’re glad you found the Southern Arizona Gender Alliance!

SAGA is a non-profit organization that supports and advocates for southern Arizona’s community of trans identities: transsexual, transgender, genderqueer, masculine of center, feminine of center, non-binary, two-spirit, butch, femme, gender fluid, intersex, and ALL of us who are gender fabulous!

SAGA envisions a society in which transgender, non-binary, and gender-creative people are ensured of their basic rights and can be open, honest and safe at home and in the community. We provide support groups, advocacy, community education, and training for businesses, service providers, and community members on how our allies can be supportive and inclusive.

SAGA HAS AN OFFICE NOW!

2030 East Broadway, Suite 219
(top of the central stairway)

After so many years of working out of the Board member’s homes, SAGA now has an office space and address.  It’s a wonderful space for keeping SAGA growing and active on the forefront of Trans Advocacy and Support for years to come.

Come celebrate the acquisition of the space, but mostly congratulate the board members and yourself!  Yes, you have helped SAGA grow to be the community organization it is today!  The fact is SAGA needs the space because of all the many areas it is active in today.

SAGA’s Dezert Partnerz group meets to discover ways a partner, spouse, family member or close friend can support their trans partner through transition and beyond.

How can I understand what my partner is going through?
What kind of support do they need?
How can I show my respect for my partner as they go through transition?
What kind of community support do they need?

Come to SAGA’s Dezert Partnerz meeting to meet others who have gone down the same path. The fourth Monday of every month, 7:00pm – 9:00, Studio One, 197 E. Toole Ave, Tucson.
