When your child comes out as transgender -  a Q&A with Sue Chitayi

Sue’s son came out to her as transgender and started transitioning to male when he was 23. Sue has learned a lot from her son’s experience and now works as a parent volunteer for community interest company Gendered Intelligence, providing advice and support to other parents of trans children.

She’s talked to parents of adults and younger transgender children, and described how the process and the emotions involved are similar whatever the age of the transgender person, for both the parent and the child. She is also a fully trained Street Pastor, mother of three, grandmother of five and soon-to-be great grandmother of one. Click here to read the Q&A
