Second Sunday of Each Month

3:00PM - 4:30PM

Ages 6-12

Free, Monthly, No RSVP Required

About the program:

This is a free, monthly, art and play group for transgender, gender creative, and gender expansive youth ages 6-12. Gender creative kids color outside the lines of the gender box they were assigned at birth. They don't listen when people say that girls can't play with trucks and boys can't wear tutus. If this sounds like your child, please join us to create a safe space where we can rewrite the rules together. The only requirement for attendance is respect for the other participants' creativity. This group meets at the same time and one program room over from PFLAG - the parent, peer, and friend support group. Parents and guardians are encouraged to stay and attend PFLAG if possible.
