Marsha's Tea Room
Join the community and help support the health and welfare of transgender individuals. It takes courage to reveal your inner self. Stand with those who do! Just as Marsha P Johnson threw a brick at Stonewall in 1969, pick up your own and help us build something eternal that stands for the justice that transgender people are never given but greatly deserve.
We are a 501c(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible under federal tax law.
Marsha's Tea Room is many things. Most visibly, it provides a safe space for members of the transgender community and allies to socialize and further TGNC health and education efforts. Our main objective is to promote the health and welfare of the transgender community. Donations are utilized primarily for covering the costs associated with hormone therapy for transgender and gender nonconforming individuals demonstrating financial need. Other uses for funding involve education on issues impacting daily life and micro grants for other needed health services with trans friendly providers.
Funds go to hormone therapy, education, healthcare, and advocacy.
Join us for a cup of coffee and hang out in the Tea Room.
Be part of our team.
We are partnered with Spectrum: The Other Clinic to provide HRT services to individuals with financial need. Our tea room and resources are located within the clinic office building.

Why? Marsha P. Johnson protested in 1970 as a counterprotestor at the Gay Liberation Front protest at Bellevue Hospital. She held a sign reading "Power To The People." Power not only to identify oneself as transgender, but also taking advantage of the same rights as any other human in society. The right to receive appropriate medical and mental healthcare, addressing poverty, suicide, marriage, and maybe even being able to just simply use the restroom. She would be proud to see how far some in the LGBTQ+ family have been accepted into the community and the rights they now enjoy. Marsha's Tea Room will attempt to honor her spirit and drive in the support of all transgender and gender nonconforming people.
