Parents of Trans youth speak out.

In the last decade there has been a substantial increase in the number of families who are acknowledging and supporting children who exhibit gender variant behavior.  Join us for our August meeting, which will feature a panel of parents sharing their stories of challenges and triumphs navigating the educational and legal system and medical communities to help their children live as their affirmed gender.

Leslie Lagerstrom is the creator of the blog Transparenthood™, which chronicles her family’s experience raising a transgender child. She is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post and is a speaker for Welcoming Schools – a nationwide initiative  to foster safe classroom environments.

Jennifer Tell is a resident of White Bear Lake, MN.  She is married and has 2 children, a transgender son who is 10, and a daughter who is 8. She runs a dance studio in the northern metro.
