Telling Your Story, One Moment at a Time

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learn about the benefits of sharing your experiences with others. Create community and connections by writing about specific moments along your journey with a transgender or gender non-conforming child. Education, advocacy and awareness are positive by-products of blogging. Understand the emotional effects on others who discover, through your writing, that they are not alone. Three vocal “Ally Moms” of trans* children will share their experiences and teach participants how to start their own blog. Because of one woman’s willingness to open up and be very public about her family’s journey a group called Ally Moms was formed. Each of the presenters is an active voice within Ally Moms that has international reach.
