Support for Spouses and Partners with a Transgender Partner

Partners in Process at Spouse Support at First Event Transgender Conference In so many cases the non-transgender partners and spouses of transgender men and women are left in the dark as their wife, husband or partner starts to understand and then embrace their own truth on being transgender. It doesn’t matter if the transgender partner is part-time, full-time or some-time – their partner, whether straight, bi, gay or lesbian is often wondering:

  • What is going on?
  • Why is this happening now?
  • What will happen to me?
  • What will happen to our kids?
  • What will happen to us – what happened to the love of my life?

There’s alot of questions and First Event 2016 has some help in store
with our PiP Program: Partners in Process.

Whether you are married or partnered to an FtM, MtF, be they
crossdressers, transexual or genderqueer, TCNE’s Partners in Process
Program is designed to help you get answers to your questions, find
resources to help, build friendships to encourage you, hear you, and make sure you know – you are NOT alone!

There is no additional fee for PiP, it’s a part of First Event and it is
only for the partners of trans-persons.
