Gender Creative Parenting Collective

Event date: 
Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

This group is designed to support the ongoing development of parents and educators of self-identified genderqueer and/or trans children, teens, or young adults, as well as children who are “gender creative,” gender non-conforming, or who express themselves in ways that society deems non-normative. The aim of this group is to offer parents tools to unlearn and dismantle homophobia, transphobia, and misogyny within their family structures, their schools, neighborhoods and faith communities so that they may better support their children and all children. This group assumes best intent (we are all here to learn and grow and make mistakes), takes an intersectional feminist approach (we all live at the intersection of multiple identities), and affirms the dignity and unique gifts of gender creative children. This group is newly forming and plans to meet on the first Wednesday of each month. The group is facilitated by Charis Circle Executive Director, E.R. Anderson and Tristin Chipman, a Decatur therapist and social worker who specializes in gender-affirming care for young people. If you have questions, concerns or would like to be more involved, please email E.R. Anderson at eranderson@chariscircle.org.
