Finding support & building community.
This group can be for you whether you are adjusting to recent changes in your relationship, or if you are looking for a space to build community with other folks who have TGNCNB partners. We understand that not all of the topics below apply to every situation, but these are some of the issues that folks have discussed in past groups:
- Adjusting to changes in your relationship.
- Decisions about how relationship will evolve.
- Does my partner’s transition affect my identity?
- Sex and intimacy.
- How do I take care of myself as I manage my own feelings?
- Are there other people out there like me?
- Coming out…at work, with friends, with family, with strangers?
- Surgery(ies): preparations, caregiving, reaching out for help.
- Effects of other medical interventions including hormones on your relationship.
- Finding affirming medical & mental health providers (for yourself as well as for your partner).
