Trans Melbourne Gender Project (TMGP) is a coalition of people of all genders engaged in activism and support around gender. Their mission is to create a society where people are able to freely embody the gender they feel they are, whether that be transgendered, transsexual, intersex, gender-queer, MTF, FTM, queer, or none of the above.
