The holidays are looking a bit different this year. But despite the need to celebrate while social distancing or via a video link, as we sit down to give thanks, we can remember what is most important: family, whatever family looks like to you.
You might be able to tell from our name (Trans FAMILIES), that family is at the heart of our work. From our inception, supporting families and assisting them in supporting their gender-diverse and trans kids has been our focus. And Trans Families wouldn’t exist without families like yours…reaching out for help, celebrating your children, volunteering your time, and donating money to support our work.
That support has translated to a huge expansion of our online support groups and more activity in our forums during the last few months. And we are so thankful for that!
We wouldn’t exist without the amazing children who unabashedly declare who they are and live their lives to the fullest every single day. We are thankful for open minds, open hearts, and the freedom they feel to explore gender in ways that far too many couldn’t do in the past.
If you would like to support those kids and our work with other families into 2021, our Double Thanksgiving event is taking place now. You can make a donation here.
Again, thank you for supporting and loving your children, thank you for being a part of our extended family, and thank you for spending part of your time with us.
