Transgender American Veterans Association Logo

Empowerment, Advocacy, Equality

The Transgender American Veterans Association advocates equality for transgender veterans and active duty service members in healthcare, benefits, and open transgender military service. We also help veterans change their name and gender within the Department of Veteran Affairs, update their name and characterization of discharge on their DD-214, and provide services such as our transgender support locator, which offers local support for transgender persons. TAVA is committed to equal rights for all veterans.
