PARENTS OF TRANS KIDS SUPPORT GROUP
NEXT MEETING - THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2016 AT 6:30 PM
Monthly Meetings - 3rd Thursday of the month
at Nemours duPont Hospital, 1600 Rockland Rd, Wilmington DE 19803
Meetings will start at 6:30 pm
(stop at the Welcome Desk for directions to our meeting room)
Parents will be able to network with other families that are going through similar experiences while raising a transgender or non-gender conforming child. The goal of the group is to provide parents a safe space where they can discuss what issues are important to them. They will have the chance to raise questions, share resources, network and listen to the experience of other parents whose children are gender diverse. Issues explored will include school, legal matters, privacy, siblings, extended family, and medical.
If you would like to attend our meeting on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at 6:30 pm, please email your name along with the age of your child to PTKDelaware@gmail.com

Did you know that 7.5% of Delaware youth identify as LGBTQ? Most don’t have someone they feel comfortable talking to about the important things going on in their lives, but Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware with the United Way of Delaware want to change that. With Big Brothers Big Sisters, we aim to match LGBTQ youth with an LGBTQ or allied adult, someone who they can talk to and trust. Do you know an adult or youth who would benefit from our program? Contact Big Brothers Big Sisters today. For info call Colleen Dougherty,Big Brother Big Sisters of DE, LGBTQ Mentor Case Manager, (302) 998-3577, firstname.lastname@example.org
