Parental Support Groups: Why They Are Important for Parents of Trans Kids and How We Can Help You Start One

This workshop is designed to help parents with transgender children of all ages learn why parental support groups are an important part of this journey and how they can start a support group in their own community. Transparent is a nonprofit organization out of St. Louis, MO, that supports parents with transgender kids through parent-run support groups. We have been opening chapters around the country and want to help parents start chapters in their local communities. If parents of trans kids are connected under one organization, it makes it much easier to unite when issues arise that need our attention. In today’s unique political atmosphere, the more parents of transgender children are connected, the more we will be able to fight for our children’s rights as one large, united group of parents.
