Why Join?

As a paid member of the River City Gems, you will be entitled to significant discounted pricing on most Gems events.

Entry fees at Gems events only cover a portion of total event costs. The remainder is subsidized by membership dues and donations. We also rely on membership dues and donations to pay for essential operating expenses like non-profit costs, insurance, storage, our post office box, and website hosting.

Most important of all, your support enables us to continue serving the needs of the members and the transgender community through social events, education, and outreach.
