The Tri-Ess Chapter in Houston was first organized in February of 1981 as Tri-Delta with an initial membership of 14. With the creation of the Gulf Coast Transgender Club, GCTC, in 1986, there was a re-organization and Tau Chi became the Tri-Ess Chapter serving Southeast Texas. The membership has grown to over 80 with attendance at many meetings and functions exceeding 25-40.
Tau Chi is a non-profit organization focused on providing support, education and outreach to single and married heterosexual crossdressers and their spouses, significant others, families and friends.
We welcome everyone to our internet home. We are NOT an adult site and DO NOT have any links to adult only sites. Through visiting our home we hope that we
can provide information to educate you on the "gender gifted" crossdresser and invite you to join Tau Chi, if you meet our membership requirements.
The Tau Chi Chapter Goals:
To provide a safe, supportive and confidential environment for our members to dress with dignity as women or men.
To provide our members and their family members with programs and activities each month that meet their needs for dignity, acceptance, education and enrichment.
To provide outreach and educational programs to other crossdressers in the general public.
To provide educational programs for helping professionals with the goal of acceptance and understanding of the heterosexual crossdresser and the significant people in his/her lives.
Tau Chi Provides:
A private meeting place where you can dress with dignity while maintaining your confidentiality.
A loving and supportive environment to gain understanding and acceptance of yourself and your gender gifts.
A place where wives, significant others and family members can meet to gain understanding and possibly acceptance of your need to crossdress and cross gender lines.
The opportunity to go out with other members in public crossdressed to restaurants, plays and other public places that are supportive.
Speakers and programs to area colleges, schools and professional groups to educate them on our "gender gifted" community.
Opportunity to attend conventions such as the annual Holiday Enfemme, SPICE, Dignity Cruises and other area and national events for crossdressers and their significant others.
Provide resources to our membership through the quarterly Tri-Ess Mirror, the monthly Tau Chi Femme Forum, the Tri-Ess and Tau Chi web sites and referrals to area helping professionals.
