Trans And Gender Diverse Resources

At Rainbow Families we acknowledge families are created in various ways. We also acknowledge that not all parents identify as “mum” or “dad”, and some parents may be exploring their gender identity, or transitioning. We also acknowledge some parents may have a child or teenage who is exploring their gender identity, who may identify as transgender and/or non binary or gender diverse (TGD).

 

Here are some wonderful resources including some groups.

TransHub is a comprehensive resource for anyone with a TGD family member or friend, as well as for members of the TGD community. 

For TGD parents

Australian TGD Peer Support has two groups. One is for those in the relationship, the other group is for non-transitioning partners and ex partners. There are also a number of parents in these groups as well.

 

There is also a full list of resources on this page.
