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.
Are you part of the 9.4% of transgender people who are autistic? What did you wish you’d known when you were first working things out? What goes into a resource booklet for Autistic Transgender People? Help us at Gender Minorities Aotearoa to decide.
In some regions of Aotearoa, health pathways are being developed by cross sector working groups - these may include District Health Boards, Endocrinology, General Practitioners, Mental Health, Student Health, Youth Services, Specialist Services, Transgender Takataapui and Intersex Community Leaders, and other experts.
Research reports that are based in Aotearoa New Zealand or are relevant to us here.
Employment and Working while transgender takataapui or intersex
Information resources for students and schools
Info on Sex and Relationships for Transgender Intersex, and Takataapui people, & the people who love us
Booklets, videos, links, and other general info for yourself, whanau, friends, and community.
