The International Foundation for Gender Education (IFGE),
founded in 1987, is a leading advocate and educational organization
for promoting the self-definition and free expression of individual
gender identity. IFGE is not a support group, it is an information
provider and clearinghouse for referrals about all things which
are transgressive of established social gender norms. IFGE maintains
the most complete bookstore on the subject of transgenderism
available anywhere. It also publishes the leading magazine
providing reasoned discussion of issues of gender expression
and identity, including crossdressing, transsexualism, FTM and
MTF issues spanning health, family, medical, legal, workplace
issues and more.
- individual uniqueness and dignity;
- personal wholeness;
- respect for human diversity;
- freedom from society's arbitrarily assigned gender definitions;
- respect, acceptance, enforcement, and protection of gender-related
Human and Civil Rights for all.
Located at 14 Felton Street in Waltham MA, IFGE serves as
a focal point for the worldwide transgender community, and for
all those seeking greater freedom of gender expression.
