PlanetRomeo Foundation

TransParent

TransParent brings parents of transgender/intersex children together in order to educate and empower them. TransParent has set up the so-called Parents Initiative to offer them support, and educational programs to strengthen them.

With PlanetRomeo Foundation funding, TransParent organized bi-monthly meetings. During these meetings, psycho­social support by an educated psychologist was available or – if needed – services of a social worker or lawyer. Additionally, they launched their website.
