We had a fabulous time at the opening of Aunty Dana's Op Shop, where over 150 people came along to share the occasion and check things out. We met some wonderful folks, and had lots of great talks. All the new (and ... less-new) volunteers were amazing, and we all did heaps of work but it felt like a party!

Welcome to our Top 10 for Youth and Whanau! The process of working out your gender, as well as telling your family, can be a tricky one. Sometimes our whanau struggle to understand or accept this too. Sometimes they really want to support us, but they don't know the right words, or have a really good way to think about it yet. This post is a collection of great reading material and videos for you and your whanau, which might help to make the process easier.
