I was asked recently for resources for trans people with children. Honestly, there’s never very much, but here’s the list I sent her:

If anyone has any newer resources I haven’t yet seen, please do add them!

    Helen,

    Transfamily in Cleveland is not a new organization, they do have e-groups that support children of trans-parents. They’ve had some organizational difficulties lately and only recently regained control of their web address.

    Some more resources are here, under the broader umbrella of trans families, inclusiveness, and trans youth:

    They are a bit limited for addressing “coming out to your kids/family”, but recommended.

    Colage has a specific subsection for trans parents: http://www.colage.org/programs/trans/

    Included is a guide for people approaching transition.

    If any readers are in the Bay Area, there is a Trans Parent support group sponsored by Our Family Coalition. It’s on the third Saturday of every month at the SFLGBT Community Center on Market (at Octavia) from 10am-noon. The group has been going on for almost two years.
