  • Free Sharps Containers!! 
    • MaineTransNet has received a generous donation of 50 - 1 quart sharps containers and a small supply of alcohol prep pads. We are happy to make these available to our members on a first come-first served basis. The only stipulation for this donation is that they go to Trans people in Maine. We are happy to provide them free of charge to anyone in need; however, we will not turn down donations to cover shipping. Simply send us an EMAIL ( to request one and include name and mailing address so we know where to send it. Enter "Sharps Container" in the subject line to expedite the process. If you would like to make a donation to cover shipping, go to our website and click the "how to help" tab and scroll to the bottom of the page, where you will find info on how to make an electronic (Paypal) or snail mail donation. We will also try to remember to bring a few to meetings to have them available for pick up in person.

The Evolution of this Website:

Our goal is to make this THE info website for transgender issues specific to Maine and contain a multitude of useful information for all people interested in trans-related topics. We are looking for website authors who would like to contribute, especially to the "writing" and "trans info" sections, though help on any section will be valued. More people involved with this project means that we can provide more information and represent a wider variety of perspectives. Anyone with ideas about gender is welcome to contribute--you don't have to be trans or know a single thing about HTML!

Email us with your ideas or if you want to be involved!
