OUR LOVE & SUPPORT GOES OUT TO BLACK, INDIGENOUS, PEOPLE OF COLOR - WE SEE YOU, WE HEAR YOU AND WE STAND IN SOLIDARITY!
We OPPOSE H.B. 1475 “SEX-SPECIFIC STUDENT ATHLETIC TEAMS OR SPORTS”We are outraged to hear the news that House Bill 1475 passed the Florida House of Representatives on April 14, 2021. It will now head over to the Senate for approval before landing on Governor Desantis' desk to be signed into Florida law. This bill is a clear sign of hatred toward a marginalized group who have been playing sports in this state for years. The legislation requires athletes in any school or school-sponsored athletic, intramural, or club sports to only allow students to participate on the team based on their sex assigned at birth, without regard to their gender identity. Any dispute is to be resolved by a medical examination, and this includes elementary school-aged children. This bill is inflammatory and outright discriminatory and a violation of privacy. It is yet another attempt of Florida politicians to stigmatize and traumatize a transgender youth. We are beyond disgusted and will continue to use our voice to fight the bigots in Tallahassee.
Due to growing concerns for Covid-19, we will now only offer telehealth (video) initial/intake sessions, psychotherapy, and all support groups via HIPAA-compliant platforms until further notice.

Take care of yourselves and respect the suggested social distancing and help flatten the curve. Our Trans Youth, Adult, and Parents of Trans Support Groups will meet via Zoom in the weeks noted in calendar below until it is safe for us to share space again.
