TransKids Purple Rainbow Foundation
TKPRF is committed to the premise that Gender Dysphoria is something a child can't control and it is society that needs to change, not them

Mermaids: Family Support Group for Children and Teenagers with Gender Identity Issues
Mermaids is a support group for gender variant children and teenagers, and their families.

TransYouth Family: Understanding Through Education
TYFA empowers children and families by partnering with educators, service providers and communities to develop supportive environments in which gender may be expressed and respected. We envision a society free of suicide and violence in which ALL children are respected and celebrated.
