Transgender Advisory Council

About TAC

community-led | project-based | policy-oriented

In 2016, the City of Los Angeles became the largest city in America to establish a permanent council of transgender community leaders to advise the City on how to best serve the needs of transgender Angelenos.

The Transgender Advisory Council (TAC) advises the Mayor, City Council, elected officials, and governmental agencies to implement policy, programs, and projects that tackle the issues that matter most important to the transgender community in Los Angeles. Our committees plan, recommend, and implement policies, programs, and projects that elevate, amplify, and serve the transgender community.
