At The Gender Society we do understand what
it can be like as a young person, discovering for the
first time that you feel as though you need to be a member
of the opposite sex. We have all been there before so
you are far from alone.
However, while we understand what
it is you are going through, we also know our limitations.
It's unfortunate but as our efforts are concentrated
elsewhere, we are simply not able to offer the kind of
guidance and counseling that you need.
Therefore, we have put together some
links to organizations that should be able to help you
more than we can...
