Resources for Friends and Families
Here is a list of resources for parents who are transgendered, parents of transgendered persons, and children of transgendered persons.

Online Support Groups
Significant Other Support Group for the wives of Crossdressers. Contact Julie (925) 937-8432 Julie39@comcast.net

Chi Upsilon Iota Tri-Ess Champaign/Urbana IL

We are a newly forming chapter of TRI-ESS. Tri-Ess is an educational, social and support group for heterosexual crossdressers, their spouses or partners and their families. We support both crossdressers and their spouses. We believe that we are blessed with an additional facet to our personalities. If we accept our crossgendered side, and explore it, we will find a broadening of the entire personality, which can be very fulfilling. We dress in emulation, rather than in mockery, of femininity.
