Workshop Description

Are you a newcomer on this journey with your gender fluid or transgender child? Perhaps you are an “old timer” happy to share your experience and hope with others. Please join us for an intimate discussion amongst all of us who are parenting trans and gender fluid children. There will be a short presentation of our story discussing the fears that we once had but no longer do. Our story will be followed by small group discussion intended for you to make connections and hopefully lasting friendships with other families at the conference. Discussion will focus on the unique rewards and challenges of this adventure, moving from fear and confusion to clarity and joy.
