About Us

FORGE was founded in 1994 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to provide peer support primarily to those on the female-to-male (FTM) gender spectrum and local Significant Others, Friends, Family, and Allies (SOFFAs).  Over the years, our scope has grown to include everyone in the transgender community (which we define as including SOFFAs), and many of our programs have become national.  You’ll find information about the training and technical assistance we provide, plus descriptions of our major current projects.
