Thanks for making the effort to visit Transcend Australia to find out more about how to support a young trans person in your life. You might be a neighbour, a Best Friend Forever (BFF) or someone wanting to learn more so that you can be a great ally to a young trans person.
We know from the research available that trans people can face extra challenges in life, compared to the general population. This is not because someone is trans, it is because of the way trans people are treated by others or the systems we engage with are not always accessible or safe.
Transcend Australia works to advocate for improvements in services and systems for trans people and their families. We also work to provide support to the important people in the lives of trans young people so that people like you can be fully equipped with evidence based information and increased understanding. There is a lot of misinformation out there in the world and it can drive fear and negative views towards trans people. Together we can change that.
The more people in a trans young persons life who are supportive, caring, informed and compassionate can make a huge difference to how they experience life. We want all trans young people to flourish and thrive, to live their best life and to be able to dream of positive futures and enjoy all the same things as other young people do. We are grateful that you are here and you are welcome to read our resources and access our services to help learn more about how to be there for a trans young person in your life.
