When: The first Tuesday of every month. We begin at 6:00 p.m. and finish at 7:30 p.m.

The Group:

A monthly support group for parents and guardians of gender creative children under the age of 14. This is a drop in group where new families are welcome to join at any point throughout the year. Gender creative children are kids who express their gender in ways that are different than what might be expected based on their assigned sex at birth. This includes children who may be questioning their gender, transgender, gender non-conforming, gender independent, gender fluid, gender-queer, non-binary, or Two-Spirit.

This group is an opportunity for caregivers to share stories, support each other in a non-judgmental atmosphere, and learn more about how to support their gender creative kids. The group is facilitated by an educator from Calgary Sexual Health Centre as well as Ashleigh Yule Psychology and includes some resource sharing as well as discussion time.

Free Child Care is provided in a seperate room during the group. Child Care is run by staff from Families Matter and volunteers who have extensive experience working with gender creative kids. Many caregivers voice that they have difficulty finding spaces for their kids to connect with other children who share these experiences. This group acts as space for kids to play and hang out with other gender creative children while the parents and guardians meet. Siblings are always welcome to attend.

This group is closed to only families of gender creative children. Please RSVP so we know who to expect at each meeting.

Not a parent of a gender creative kid? Still looking for information about LGBTQ+ identities or gender creativity in children?

Additional supports and information is available at Calgary Sexual Health Centre. Call 403-283-5580 or email generalmail@calgarysexualhealth.ca for more information or to set up an appointment.
