Dr. Gennifer (Genn) Herley, PhD is the founder and Executive Director of TransNewYork. Gennifer is a proud transgender woman who recently transitioned and earned her doctorate degree in 2014. TransNewYork’s mission is to bring awareness to the issues facing the transgender non-conforming (TGNC) community and give guidance and support to individuals and their loved ones within an open and safe environment. We provide individual and group counseling and monthly meetings, in which we address issues such as gender dysphoria and encourage transgender individuals to share their stories. We wish to be an informative source for transgender resources, activities, and events.
