Welcome to the NSW Seahorse Society

What is the Seahorse Society?

The Seahorse Society of New South Wales is a non-profit social and support organisation for cross-dressers and transgender people. It is the longest running and best-known organisation of its type in Australia, having begun in 1971.

Why the name "Seahorse"?

The name "Seahorse" was adopted because "it is a rather delightful creature, a trifle slow but with graceful movement and quiet dignity" and because of its "combination, at times, of both gender roles."

What are Seahorse's aims?

The Society's aims are to bring cross-dressers and transgender people together socially in a safe venue, to provide mutual support for them, their partners and families, and to promote a better understanding of these issues to the wider community.

What is Seahorse's history?

The Seahorse Club, it was founded in 1971 by cross-dressers who wished to share their interests with like-minded people. Initially Australia wide, the club quickly grew and eventually each state formed their own branch. The N.S.W. branch was incorporated in 1990.
