SOCIAL MEDIA GROUPS (Transgender Issues)
There are many groups on social media offering support and networking opportunities for trans people. As with all social media, you should be careful about what personal details you share online. While Mermaids hosts a Facebook Group for parents of transgender and gender non-conforming children and young people, it can not endorse or recommend any other social media group.
