Creating a better world for transgender youth and their families.

 We know that for gender-expansive youth,  getting your family to understand your gender identity can be a long, complicated, and stressful process.  We also know that families can sometimes feel alone when a family member comes out as transgender or gender non-conforming and don’t always know how to be supportive and affirming.

 Transforming Families (TFF) is a community where transgender, gender non-conforming, and questioning youth and their families come together to support each other in a safe, welcoming space.  We share our stories, victories, challenges, and resources to make our communities a better place for trans youth and their families.

 

TFF Support Meetings:

  • We Host monthly support group meetings in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Mahtomedi, & Eagan. We also host a virtual meeting once a month.

  • At our meetings:
    • Families meet other families to share, talk, and create community.

    • Each meeting has separate breakout group for parents, tweens/teens, & kids to provide the opportunity to meet and learn from each other

    • Our youth groups are facilitated by adult transgender and nonbinary facilitators

 

TFF’s Community Involvement:

  • Spoke out at the MN Capitol in support of the Trans Refuge Bill to help ensure it's passage

  • One of the founding orgs in the Minnesota Trans Refuge Coalition

  • Support at school board meetings for transgender youth and their families to put in place gender inclusion policies 

  • Presence at Pride events across the state

  • Participation in educational panels to ensure the voices of trans youth and their families are heard in clinic settings

  • Celebrated the 7th Annual Day of the Transgender Child in September 2023

 

The work we do is not possible without the generous donations of our friends, families, allies, and community supporters.  Show up for our trans youth and their families.
