For families whose children are exploring gender, the journey can feel overwhelming. Here the families of transgender and gender expansive youth come together for support, learning, and community. You are not alone.
We offer a safe space for parents and caregivers to connect with others in an affirming, open, and receptive environment.
Family Day Parent/Caregiver Programming will include a series of presentations and panel discussions with local clinicians, a variety of transgender and non binary professionals, presenters, and family members just like you.
* This session was for parents/caregivers of gender expansive children only.
**This session was for Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) and parents/caregivers of gender expansive children of color only.
“As the mom of a teenage transgender boy, it was wonderful to see and hear from successful adults who are transgender and non-binary”
“Participating in Gender Journey Mid-Atlantic was a wonderful, empowering experience for me as a parent and for my nonbinary teen. There is something truly powerful in being part of a (virtual) room full of people all at different points of their gender journey, sharing experiences, wisdom, hope and humor. I took tons of notes and left feeling like I had learned and grown, and was heard and seen, as did my child. I hope we can attend again next year.”
--Jennifer G (parent)
“I was not sure what to expect, but I came away feeling engaged, encouraged and empowered. I feel I am a more informed and supported as a parent after the conference. Looking forward to next time!”
