Are you looking for support for parenting your transgender, nonbinary or gender-expansive child?

Do you need a Spanish-speaking parents group and resources in Spanish?

Are you a pre-teen or teenager looking to connect with peers about topics related to gender in a safe space?

PFLAG National is pleased to partner with Gender Spectrum, a national nonprofit working for gender-inclusive environments for all children and young people. We believe that Gender Spectrum’s work provides a valuable complement to our chapter work that will help you in navigating gender with all children and teens.

For more than ten years, Gender Spectrum has worked with thousands of families with gender-expansive children. They connect with families nationwide—and even from around the world—in several online forums that provide support, connection, information and a safe place where all parents and young people can be free to express their experiences, concerns and joys.

The Online Discussion Groups allow participants to interact, in real time, using video, audio, or chat. Group members engage in lively discussions, facilitated by Gender Spectrum staff and trained volunteers. No one is pressured to participate—the groups are fun and meaningful conversations that truly provide a safe space for all.

We know that these online discussion groups can make a tremendous difference; we all need community and a safe place to bring questions, concerns and experiences to share with others who understand. That’s why we’re proud to partner with Gender Spectrum to bring you this type of support. 

You can learn more and register to join the Online Support Groups for parents and caregivers, Dads, Spanish-speaking parents, Pre-Teens, Teens and others at https://www.genderspectrum.org/groups/.
