MaineTransNet was founded in 2005 by Alex Roan and incorporated as Maine Transgender Network, Inc. in 2009 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.



Our mission is to provide support and resources for the transgender community, their families, and significant others, and to raise awareness about the varied forms of gender identity and expression by providing training and consultation to health and social service providers.



MaineTransNet facilitates peer support groups for trans people and allies, as well as providing avenues for social networking and public dialogue. We direct people to available resources and provide training and education opportunities that utilize our expertise and experiences. For enquiries about our services, email us at
