With other northwest transgender groups the NWGA sponsors Esprit, an annual national convention for the transgendered community.
NWGA activities provide a safe and comfortable environment for members, spouses, and friends to socialize with others who share the same interests.
Some activities are private and protected; others are more public.
Participants are able to select activities that match their own levels of experience, self confidence, and comfort.
Most of the resources and information contained within is designed to be local references specific to the greater Portland-Vancouver area.
Listings of contact information are specific to four counties: Clark County in Washington, and Clackamas, Washington and Multnomah Counties in Oregon.
Spouses and partners often need support and information to help them understand and cope with gender issues in a relationship.
NWGA members often are called upon to speak to college classes and participate in conferences related to gender expression, gender identity, and human sexuality.
NWGA members also participate in community groups that deal with human rights and sexual minority issues.
Monthly open meetings provide opportunities for members and prospective members to meet and socialize with other transgendered individuals in a protective, supportive environment.
Part of each meeting is devoted to dinner and conversation.
In addition to the regular meetings, the group schedules numerous special activities through out the year.
