Who We Are

The Transgender American Veterans Association (TAVA) was formed to address the growing concerns of fair and equal treatment of transgender veterans and active duty service members.  As the population of gender-different people increases, then so does the population of veterans and active duty service members who identify as such.   TAVA serves as an educational organization that will help the Veterans Administration and the Department of Defense to better understand the individuals they encounter who identify as being gender-different.  As veterans, we have also served proudly, and will continue to do so.  TAVA is here to help where we can.






In memorial of Tina L. Rice (1946 to 2008),

Board Member-At-Large.
