TransFamilies Project

Every one of PFLAG NYC’s support groups is open to all and provides help whether your concerns focus on lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people and issues, but parents of transgender children often want to discuss their issues with parents who’ve been through the same things as themselves. PFLAG NYC provides a regular gathering for parents, family and friends of people who are transgender or gender non-conforming.

Other Resources

Be sure to see answers to common questions about transgender people.

The TransFamilies Project (TFP) is a support group for parents transgender children, as well as other family members and friends. Meeting monthly, the TransFamilies Project has participants who come from throughout the New York metropolitan area. No matter when your child disclosed his/her gender identity issues, or what stage of transition he/she is in, join with others at the TransFamilies Project to meet understanding friends, share important information, and to get (and provide) support as we all travel this special road together.

The TransFamilies Project meets twice a month. One meeting takes place on the 2nd Sunday, alternating between two locations and times. We also have a weeknight meeting on the last Tuesday of every month from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in Greenwich Village. Time and location information for the meetings is below.

Group members are also in touch with one another between meetings. For questions about the group, please contact group leader Judy Sennesh through PFLAG NYC at transgender@pflagnyc.org.

Please note: If you are going to bring someone with you to a TFP meeting who is younger than high-school age, please notify the group leader before the meeting by sending an email.
