Information about Seahorse

Some questions that you may have about our organisation.

What is the Seahorse Society?

The Seahorse Society of NSW is a social and support organisation for cross-dressers & transgender people, based in Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Please note: We are NOT a dating or sexual contact service.

Why the name "Seahorse"?

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

What are Seahorse's aims?

To bring cross-dressers & transgender people together socially in a safe venue; provide support for them, their partners & families, and promote better understanding to the wider community.
