Many parents take news of a child’s gender identity in stride. For others, it can be overwhelming and confusing when your child comes out as trans or gender expansive. All of these are common initial reactions to having a loved one “come out” as trans, especially given society’s negative attitudes towards trans people. Meeting up with other parents to get support, or maybe to give support, can be relieving and a great place to share information. Our caregiver support group includes therapeutic facilitated discussions and theme-based groups to help support, advocate, educate, process and addresses the complexities and joys of parenting gender diverse youth.
