What is it?
The Village is a 7-week program for parents of gender diverse and gender non-conforming children. This program is for parents who wish to share and talk through experiences and anxieties they may be feeling. The group discusses various topics each week facilitated by a queerspace host and a queerspace counsellor.
Who is it for?
The Village is for parents of gender diverse and gender questioning young people to learn together and provide a safe space for exploring concerns and questions. This is not a space for young people.
What does it look like?
The Village is structured around themes including anxiety, navigating educational settings, family dynamics and relationships. These interactive sessions are facilitated so that participants are enabled to ask questions, discuss concerns and hear eachother’s experiences. These vary from understanding gender, navigating family relationships and advocating for your gender diverse child in education settings. The sessions enables parents to tell their stories (if they wish) and feel heard.
When and where?
The sessions are held in Drummond Street Services mostly outside of business hours. (Tuesday or Wednesday night) and go for 1 and a half hours.
At the point of registration, our team will discuss the fee structure with you. The fee is based on capacity to pay.
