The Family Journey: Raising Gender Nonconforming Children

Summary
The Family Journey: Raising Gender Nonconforming Children follows the journey of the parents and siblings of young people who are questioning if they're a boy, a girl, or something in between. What about your thinking needs to change? How does your whole family come together to nurture and support them? The frank, vulnerable interviews with families living through this potentially scary transition demonstrate how loving and accepting your gender nonconforming child in the face of ignorance and outright hostility from the community have made them more compassionate human beings. At its heart, it's about how acceptance and unconditional love allow these kids to be who they are and not just survive, but thrive. The Family Journey is one of four films in the Youth & Gender Media Project, which together demonstrate how to reach every member of a school community--students, teachers, parents and administrators--to help them create educational settings that welcome all young people, regardless of the where they fall on the spectrum of gender identity and expression.
