We're Adding a New Partners and Family Support Group!!
One of the goals of Genderlines is to listen to gender minorities and their allies in order to provide programs and services that reflect the needs and desires of our community. As we’ve engaged the community to figure out what is needed, we’ve heard from several partners and family members of gender minorities wanting to find support for themselves as they accompany their loved one on their journey through the gender affirming process. When a loved one begins this process, those closest to them have to work through things as well. Additionally, research has shown that gender minorities who are able to maintain a strong, healthy support structure fare better than those that do not have strong support from family and friends. For that reason, Genderlines is initiating a virtual support group for loved ones of gender minorities. It will be facilitated by me as the spouse of a transgender female. For those interested, please sign up on our events page at www.genderlines.org/event.
