“My advice for parents whose kids have just come out is to get help. I focus on the various online communities where parents of trans kids can get the help they need with the process. I was shocked at how surprised I was that I had feelings about Michael’s transition. I think a lot of parents who are very affirmative forget that there are emotions attached—when we packed up all the pictures he asked us to get rid of that showed him as feminine; when we cut his long hair.

I would want parents of trans kids to know it’s OK and important to acknowledge those feelings, but it should not intersect with their child’s journey.”

If you’re a parent seeking guidance and support, please come to our Parents4Parents group meetings on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday’s of every month 6:30-8:30 pm. 🤗🌈
