Arizona Trans Youth and Parent Organization is a support group to empower children, teens and their families in a supportive and inclusive environment in which gender may be freely expressed and respected.
We are a family support group for families with gender diverse children. We provide a supportive environment for children, adolescents, and their families to explore issues of gender identity.
The group is held once a month and is comprised of a peer support group for the parents and a supervised interactive social/play group for the youth and children. Siblings age 12 and younger are also welcome.
Parents, legal guardians and extended family can discuss the challenging issues, raise questions, seek and share resources, and listen to the experiences of others. By talking to each other and sharing experiences, a family can best support their children in their gender identity and gender expression.
All are welcome along the spectrum of acceptance and understanding. This is safe place to express fear and confusion as well as ask questions.
The meetings take place in Phoenix on the 2nd Sunday every month.
