A list of resources and service providers have been compiled to assist members in supporting Gender Independent Children and Trans Youth/Adults in their schools and communities. Gender Independent Children are children whose gender identity or expression differs from what others expect.

From time to time, this list will be updated as new services, programs, and resources are developed.
