Our mission is to provide peer support as we seek to understand and express our gender identity, provide educational programs and resources, advocate for fairness and dignity for transgender people, and reach out to the community at large.

Delaware Renaissance provides peer support for adults exploring their gender identity.  We welcome anyone who considers themselves transgender, whether they identify as a crossdresser, transsexual, transgenderist, intersexed or are still discovering who they are, as well as their spouses, friends and interested professionals. We have members across the entire transgender spectrum, with diverse backgrounds, occupations, and ethnicities. The Delaware chapter is one of 12 of Renaissance around the county. 


The Delaware Chapter of Renaissance holds its meetings on the second Saturday evening of each month. 

Doors open at 7:30 pm and the meeting starts at 8:00 pm

First Unitarian Church,
730 Halstead Road
Wilmington, DE 19803



What can I expect?

We seek to provide a safe, secure, and supportive environment to all, regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, or religion. Our meetings provide a place for our members to share their experiences and concerns, and to obtain advice and encouragement. They are not a place for unaccompanied minors or mere curiosity seekers. We are not a dating service. The use of alcohol or drugs, sexual activity, and disruptive conduct are strictly prohibited at our function. 

How should I dress?

There is no dress code other than appropriate public attire. Facilities for changing clothes are available. No prior interview is required, and we will respect your desire for privacy. You may remain as anonymous as you wish. All we ask for is a name by which to call you. If someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, just reply, “I’m sorry, I’d rather not say.” All personal information you provide is kept strictly confidential to board members. If you do not wish to receive email reminders of meetings or US mail, we will honor your request.
