Support Groups

Are you helping raise a child whose gender expression is outside of typical gender norms? Does your child - or a child you know - prefer to wear the clothes of the "opposite" gender or ask/insist that you refer to them with the "opposite" pronoun? Do you struggle with how best to support your child while helping them stay safe?

You are not alone—come share your experiences with other parents, caregivers, and family members. Gender Spectrum offers a monthly support and information group for adults raising gender expansive and transgender children. We meet regularly to discuss what gender diversity means to our children and our families. Through sharing with each other, we learn to navigate our own struggles, support our children in the best way possible, and work to make the world a safer place for all children.
