What is The TransFamily Alliance Community?

The TransFamily Alliance Premium Group is a membership community of parents that was co-created by parents of trans youth and Dr. Shawn V. Giammattei, a clinical family psychologist and gender specialist creating THE best place for parents with transgender/non-binary/gender-expansive children to get accurate resources and the support they need while raising healthy, well adjusted, and happy transgender & gender-expansive kids.
