Casa Susanna II
A Transgender Community Vision
It all started when...
Susanna Valenti and her wife Marie opened their home as a safe place for gender non-conforming people in the early 1960's.
Since then, transgender people of all varieties have grown more visible in society, but still remain unsafe and ostracized in many situations.
Casa Susanna II is a visionary dream to build a resort styled retreat and convention center that would serve as a national hub and vacation destination for transgender people, their loved ones, and all who avidly support human equality.
This Transtastic You! website is a humble beginning - a website location for people to share positive transgender experiences.
Soon, small-group Casa Susanna II materials will be available here for people to host Mini-Casa gatherings. Like the original Casa Susanna, these will be safe, local places for transgender people to express themselves freely and build friendships with others.
As these Mini-Casa gatherings build, and more people become excited about the idea of a large-scale Casa Susanna II, a day will come when there are enough influential, visionary people who can come together as a Board of Directors to make that happen.
For now - we take the first steps, and they are easy ones:
1) Share something positive on this site about your transgender life by sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Share this site with others you know.
It's really just that simple. :-)
