Public vs. Private: Exploring the Complexities of Discloure

In what contexts should a child’s gender status be revealed? What are the trade-offs between open acknowledgment and “going stealth” about your child’s gender identity? We face numerous situations where we are called upon to advocate for our children and must decide whether disclosing information will create more safety and inclusion or more difficulties. In this workshop, we will create an open and supportive setting for parents to share with each other about issues of disclosure and non-disclosure in a variety of settings. This is Phyllis’ sixth year running this workshop, and each year brings something new. This year will be more of an open forum, with less didactic information, although handouts to help families navigate decisions about whether to remain private or become more public will be given out. Both new and returning families are welcome to come and share your experiences.
