their allies. It is a peer-support group whose mission is to improve the quality of life and promote visibility and equality
for female-to-male transpeople and their families. FTM International also campaigns to end shame and fear surrounding trans
issues and to end economic marginalization of transpeople. To this end, the organization offers information, networking opportunities
and advocacy to, and on behalf of, the trans-community. FTM International also provides educational services on transgender
