Riley Gender Health Program: Gender affirming healthcare
The Pride Center of Terre Haute offers a Legal Gender and Name Change (LGNC) Support Team.
We provide support for people navigating legal gender and name change processes so they do not have to do it alone. We provide general information, help with filling out forms, court support (accompanying people to court dates), connections to lawyers if needed, and continued support after the legal change to update other documents.
Below is a link to more information about the various legal name and gender change processes in Indiana. These are guides from Indiana Legal Services that provide detailed information about each step, as well as the necessary forms for adults and minors:

Receive a Binder
The Pride Center of Terre Haute offers a free chest binder to any transgender person who needs one and cannot afford or safely obtain one.
We have only two requirements in order to keep our program as inclusive as possible.
Donate a Binder
We are collecting chest binders for our Binder Exchange Program!
The Pride Center of Terre Haute is seeking donations so we can offer free chest binders (specially-designed chest compression garments) to any transgender person (FTM, MTF, genderqueer, non-binary, genderfluid, gender non-conforming, and every other non-cis identity within the trans umbrella) who needs one and cannot afford or safely obtain one. Details on how to donate are below!
The Pride Center of Terre Haute recognizes the need within our community to provide a variety of resources for individuals who undergo a gender-affirming treatment or procedure. We provide care kits which include items like bandage supplies, hygiene products, over-the-counter ointments, comforting items, snacks, and more.
Make sure your healthcare providers know the Transgender Health Standards of Care! This article includes clear guidance for healthcare professionals to provide affirming care to transgender patients.
The Pride Center of Terre Haute is proud to offer a free hygiene closet to community members. In the closet, we have items including shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, menstrual products, contraceptives, and more. The closet is located in our center and can be accessed any time we are open. Please ask a staff member to assist you in retrieving items from our closet.
