Parents of Transgender Youth
It takes many people to provide a safe, healthy environment for children, whereas children are given the security they need to develop and flourish, and to be able to realize their hopes and dreams. Our transgender youth’s first ally should always be their parents. Every year parents of LGBTQ youth take up the mantle of advocacy for their child. This year we’ve seen our transgender youth experience the weight of harmful legislation. Through it all, parents of transgender youth remained vocal with their fight for their children right to exist. We honor these parents as they continue champion for their children.
