Join us! Membership information

cropped-lscape1.gifThere are two types of membership in the Emerald City:

Type 1 – The first type of membership will provide a hardcopy newsletter to you once a month.  The cost is $40 per year prorated until June 30th if you are not a previous member. This type is intended for people who want know about the Emerald City, its events but choose not to participate in person.

Type 2 – The second kind of membership is a participating member. It is also $40 per year but you must have sponsorship from an existing member. With this type of membership you will receive the hardcopy monthly newsletter and you may attend the Emerald City functions.

Every month as a member of the Emerald City you will have the opportunity to join with other members in a social atmosphere. The club puts on no less than two organized outings, above our normal meeting each month. You also will receive a monthly newsletter (12 pages), with news and information about our community.

This is a perfect way for the individual who wishes to share with other Transgender people in a supportive outing. We offer both secure outings, those being in a private location, as well as socials that are in the main stream of society. Whichever is your choice and preference the Emerald City can provide you with the support in your life.
