Gender Spectrum Education and Training  
Dear Friend of Gender Odyssey:

The folks who have brought you the Gender Odyssey conference since 2001 are pleased to announce our newest project, Gender Spectrum Education and Training.

Gender Spectrum is a national organization dedicated to creating a more supportive world for people of all genders. We invite you to visit our web site(http://www.genderspectrum.org/) and take a look at the resources we offer to families, schools, healthcare providers, businesses, and organizations.

And for those of you who live in Western Washington, we'd like to let you know about our newest family support group:

Gender Spectrum Family Support Group

For Parents of Gender Variant and Transgender Children

Seattle, Washington
Third Sunday of each month
5:00 - 7:00 pm

Do you have a child whose gender expression is outside of typical gender norms? Does your child - or a child you know - prefer to wear the clothes of the "opposite" gender or ask/insist that you refer to them with the "opposite" pronoun? Do you struggle with how best to support your child while helping them stay safe?

You are not alone. Come join our support and information group, and share your experiences with other parents and family members. We will discuss what gender variance means to our children and our families. Through discussion, examination of current research, and sharing with each other, we will learn to navigate our own struggles, support our children in the best way possible, and work to make the world a safer place for our children. We meet monthly in Seattle's Queen Anne neighborhood.

Please join us beginning Jan 19th, 2008 and subsequently on the third Sunday of every month from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm.

Address: 2115 ½ 2nd Ave W, Seattle, WA 98119 (alley entrance)

Sliding Scale Fee: $20 - $35 individual, $35 - $50 couple
A limited number of scholarships are available.

For more information, please call Aidan at 1-877-809-4159.
