About this Event

PLEASE NOTE: FAMILIES MATTER HAS MOVED

NEW LOCATION 3404 - 25 ST NE (off of Barlow)

Starting November 5th, Gender Creative Families Night will take place at Families Matter's new location! There is plenty of free parking in front of the new building. Families Matter's windows face Barlow Trail and the Shaw building.

What is Gender Creative Families Night?

This is a support group for parents and caregivers of gender creative children. New families are welcome to join at any point throughout the year and you are welcome to attend based on your availability or interest in the evening's topic. Gender creative children are kids who express their gender in ways that are different than what is expected based on their assigned sex at birth. This includes children who may be questioning their gender, transgender, gender fluid, non-binary, two spirit, or those who express their gender in creative ways.

The 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 the LGBTQ2S+ Natural Supports Worker from Centre for Sexuality (formerly Calgary Sexual Health Centre) and includes resource sharing as well as discussion time.

Free Child Care is provided in the play room at Families Matter during the group. Child Care is run by a staff member from Families Matter and volunteers who have extensive experience working with gender creative kids. The play space is also ideal for kids to connect and play with other children who share their experiences. Siblings are always welcome to attend.

This group is closed to only families and natural supports (parents, caregivers, guardians, extended family) of gender creative children. Please RSVP so we know who to expect at each meeting in order to supply adequate childcare.

Additional supports and information is available at Centre for Sexuality. Call 403-283-3054 or email lshiels@centreforsexuality.ca for more information or to set up an appointment.
