We’re glad you found us! TYES is a Colorado-based, state-wide group supporting all gender nonconforming children and their families. TYES is dedicated to helping parents support their gender nonconforming children, and to help families find the information, resources, and the understanding that they need.
Our Mission: TYES empowers and supports families and caregivers of gender nonconforming youth by providing resources, education, outreach, and advocacy, in order to create supportive environments that allow youth to experience the joy of authenticity.
Our meetings offer parents a supportive forum to discuss the social, educational, and medical needs of their child, and to explore the journey to acceptance and celebration of each child's unique gender expression. In addition to monthly face-to-face meetings, our families benefit from connecting with others via our Facebook group and list serve. Although we all have busy lives, reside in all parts of the state, and may not always be able to make it to a face-to-face meeting, the online connections are invaluable and help families find and support one another. We also offer guest speakers and educational, mental health & medical resources.
Start here with two recommended resources. Visit our "For Parents" link above for more links and resources.
Boulder area - Meetings rotate between Boulder, Lafayette, and Longmont the second Sunday of each month, 2-4pm
Denver - Last Thursday of every month 7-9pm
Groups are also forming in Fort Collins, South Denver, and Colorado Springs. There is always potential to form additional groups around the state, based on needs and interest.
