Resources for Families and Friends
From coming out to learning how to talk inclusively or simply finding books that represent you or your child -- here is our ever-growing resource section. Finding resources and information to help support transgender and gender creative children can be harder than it looks - but it doesn't have to be.
We gather. We share.
And hopefully awareness and inclusion grows.
From what I'm hearing from many parents of Gender Diverse Children (GDC), both locally and across North America, when their children first identify or realize how they're feeling, like myself, knowing where to go is a challenge. It's isolating. Many people face challenges in finding ways to make their families accept who they are and what they are experiencing is real. There is a lot of misinformation out there.
Here is an ongoing, ever-changing list of credible resources, research and support links.
I would also encourage parents to seek out local LGBTQ2 organizations.
Children's hospitals (the urban ones tend to be the most up to date) will also provide guidance. You are not alone.
