Local Transgender Resources
Online Transgender Resources
Welcome to the new River City Gems Resources Directory. Our goal is to provide a collection of online resources on diverse topics of interest to the transgender and crossdressing community, as well as a selected list of local Sacramento and Northern California resources.
The directory is far from complete. Compiling an extensive resource list takes time, and we hope to see this section grow into a truly useful source of information for trans* people and their partners, families, friends, and allies.
You can use the menus above to browse local or online resources by category. If you know of an important resource that we do not have listed here, please let us know
