- The love of a child. Few things are more precious or heart-warming
than the bond and relationship of love that exists between
parent and child. Few would argue against the ideal that a
child's parents are the most important people in their life.
Sadly, that ideal seems to be lost if the parent happens to
be transgendered (or lesbian, gay or bisexual), especially
if the marriage or partnership does not remain intact. The
anger, betrayal and resentment from the non-transgender parent
or the overly self-focused actions and behavior of the transgender/transitioning
parent often place the child in the middle. The inability
to resolve the adult issues forces the decision upon the legal
system, upon psychiatric professionals to determine the best
interests of the child. Transgender/transsexualism becomes
an emotional issue in a custody determination, the outcome
often depending more on who the professionals are than on
the quality of the relationship between the parents and the
child. "How will this affect the child developing their
own sexual identity?" "What kind of immorality will
the child be exposed to?" The dichotomy of this issue
is that if the Transgender Parent remains with their partner,
removing the child or terminating a parent's rights is very
unlikely, generally there would have to be other strong extenuating
circumstances. What happens when custody is disputed? Can
a transgender parent's rights be invalidated based on "finding"
their identified gender is not the recognized "legal"
gender? What information exists about the affect of having
a transgender parent? How do courts rule? TransParentcy was
founded by a transgender parent and is dedicated to the Transgender
Parent and their Children, and committed to the fight to protect
and honor the precious relationship between them. Our mission
is to support the transgender parent, and their supporters
and advocates (lawyers, mental health professionals, friends,
family, allies) by providing information and resources to
educate and thus disspell the myths about being transgendered/transsexual
having an adverse impact on one's children.

Trans-Youth Education and Support (TYES) is an organization
that was founded in 2007 as a support group for gender-variant
children and their families. For more information on how TYES
can help your family, please use the contact information above.
TYES is dedicated to helping parents cope with their gender-variant
children, and to help families find the information, resources,
and the understanding that they need. While the youth enjoy
each others company, the parents meet together to support
one another. Often this support means helping families through
the process of acceptance and understanding. We also work
together to find solutions for children who are starting school
in their affirmed gender. Sometimes we help each other understand
the future regarding safety, hormones, emotional concerns
and much more. Most importantly, TYES provides children a
safe place to be themselves without the harsh judgments they
often encounter. In our short time as a group, we have seen
several young people find a new sense of themselves. They
find a freedom in knowing they are not alone, and in being
with a group of people who celebrate them just the way they
are. TYES supports all families of gender variant youth, not
just those that are transitioning or considering transition.
If you would like to join us, please email us at the address
below. Please know that we recognize that privacy is critical
for our families and we work hard to protect the privacy of
everyone in the group.
