We run local groups at a number of locations nationwide as detailed to the right of this page.
Families including younger children and teens aged 16 or over attend, and they have to be members of Mermaids, and undergone the checks required to join either the parents or teens groups.
Although that depends on the partner I’m with and what circles they travel in.”Why do you mean? If I’m dating someone who identifies as a female, then they are already generally identifying as queer, or else they wouldn’t be dating me.
So they’re already into queer circles, and there’s a lot less exposition that I have to do about what trans is.
In turn, these families and young people are educating the professionals that they are encountering.
Families have reported that as well as the educational aspects of the weekends, the ability to meet others in a supportive environment without the need to explain or justify themselves or their children is invaluable.
It’s when I’m dating guys, the majority of whom are straight, that I have to give that exposition.
So there is a gender bias, but it comes from the fact that one population is usually in the queer community, and the other isn’t.
We have to arrange speakers and workshops, plan accommodation, sort catering and any travel needs, plan for kids activities so parents and teens can attend workshops knowing their younger children are safe and occupied, get arts and craft supplies, carry out risk assessments, check insurance, manage waiting lists and applications, create registers and email information and updates to all.As demand for Mermaids services is on a steep upward trajectory, our plan is to employ additional staff members to enable us to increase services such as residential weekends, a peer mentoring scheme for new members, more local groups for both parents, children and teens, and to encourage and manage volunteer engagement from within the community.If you are interested in helping us to achieve those goals, and would like to donate to support Mermaids and the work we do, please click here.It’s not a dominating conversation when you’re dating somebody, but if they’re not fully on board and aware of what’s going on, they’re not worth my time.”I’ve spoken to trans individuals who don’t like feeling like they “need” to disclose something like that upfront. Now, some will give you the option to list a trans status, but I don’t believe it belongs there.Does it bother you that you feel like you have to disclose your trans status so early in a relationship? That said, when I’m meeting the person, I believe it’s about my time and my feeling this person out.
