Information for Parents and Caregivers

Parents, caregivers, extended family and allies of gender expansive and/or transgender children and youth face challenges that can be overwhelming on many levels. You may struggle with your own ability to affirm a child in their gender diversity, while simultaneously managing personal emotional self-care. You may feel unprepared to be an effective advocate for your child when it comes to communicating their needs and details related to their identity challenges, including (at times) defending their essential right to express their gender as they experience it.

We believe the information and resources TransActive provides can help you navigate this journey, no matter which stage of the process you, or the child are at.
