Raising Rainbows e-zine

If you've followed our journey for a while, you'll know that my middle child identifies as transgender.

She first articulated this to us at age 3, and then by age 4 she had asked us to refer to her using female pronouns and allow her to live as a girl. 

She is now 6 years old. 

Transgender rights are, of course, always at the forefront of my mind as we navigate our experience of raising a transgender-identifying child - we want to do our part to make the world as welcoming and inclusive a place as it can possibly for our child and others like her. 

With that in mind, I've created the Raising Rainbows e-zine - a quarterly newsletter which aims to support transgender youth by educating their families, friends and allies - young and old. 

Content will focus on demystifying and simplifying transgender issues including language & terminology and current news events. There will be regular book recommendations, interviews with trans activists, and information to help you to become a better ally to the trans community.

If you consider yourself an ally to the transgender community and wish to be kept up to date with developments affecting them, petitions you can sign and transgender activists that you can support - please sign up below to receive the Raising Rainbows e-zine.

The e-zine will be delivered via e-mail on a quarterly basis, unless something of importance crops up such as an important petition - in which case an emergency newsletter will be sent.
