TransFamily Support Group of Silicon Valley 

Meets: 3rd Saturday of the month, 3-5pm

Contact: SiliconValleyTransFamily@mail.com

We’re a group of parents with young gender-creative or transgender kids (up to about age 13, though all ages are welcome) living up and down the San Francisco Peninsula. Sometimes only the parents meet in a support group setting, and other times we meet with our children for a family play group. It’s wonderful to see our children playing and growing up together.
