From PixelPulse Magazine:

When The World Professional Association for Transgender Health holds its biennial symposium from Sept. 5-8 in the U.S., there’s a chance participants will be discussing what sort of role a unique environment like Second Life could play in helping people deal with gender identity issues.

I recently visited the Transgender Resource Center in Second Life and found the staff to be friendly and helpful. You can read more about the Transgender Resource Center here.
