In-Person Event: Raising Gender Expansive Children and Teens

Learn More

Register here.

A one-day, in-person workshop in Oakland, CA for anyone who has a child in their life that simply doesn’t fit into our society’s notions about gender. 

Are you…

  • Confused by what your child is saying about their gender?
  • Uncertain about how to respond to your child’s gender?
  • Concerned about how you will explain your child’s gender to others?
  • Worried about your child’s prospects for a safe, healthy, and happy future?
  • Seeking ways to advocate for your child’s needs in school, your community, and elsewhere?

Raising kids is challenging; when your child is transgender, Non-binary or otherwise Gender-expansive, the task becomes that much greater.  But you are not alone.

Join Gender Spectrum for a day of learning, conversation, and reflection about your child’s gender. Having walked thousands of parents and families through this journey, we can help you get a better understanding of what may be happening with your child, how to best respond, and what steps to take next. While there are no simple, one size fits all answers, there are strategies you can use as you navigate this path.
