The Conversation’s webinar will be held on Thursday, Oct. 21 from 4-5 pm EDT/1-2 pm PDT.
This webinar is designed to explore gender diversity in teens and answer questions for those just engaging with these issues and those seeking more information. Learn about transgender history and how it informs trends today. What are some ways we can promote health and positive development of youth who identify as transgender and gender-diverse? Where can we find general resources for parents and teens who would like to learn more about transgender and nonbinary issues? Where should they start their conversation and with whom? Please bring your questions about this important topic.
