Exploring Gender. Together.
Gender Diversity increases the awareness and understanding of the wide range of gender diversity in children, adolescents, and adults by providing family support, building community, increasing societal awareness, and improving the well-being for people of all gender identities and expressions.
What We Do
There is a lot for parents and caregivers to figure out when a child is gender-diverse. Since 2008, Gender Diversity has been hosting regular support groups across the Puget Sound. With trained facilitators, and adjoining kids’ activities, we lead weekly gatherings for parents and families. All new attendees must complete a pre-screening intake call with our Parent Services staff.
Gender Odyssey, founded in 2001, is an international conference focused on the needs and interests of trans and gender diverse people, their loved ones, and professionals who serve them. Packed with thought-provoking workshops, professional training opportunities, networking, and social events, this one-of-a-kind annual gathering attracts people from all over the world for an uplifting weekend of skills sharing and community.
Our staff has been providing school faculty and staff trainings for over a decade. We’ve worked with kids, parents, PTAs, lawyers, administrators, medical staff, churches, and HR departments across the country create inclusive, safe environments.
