Many of us came to Delaware Renaissance, or another support group, for the first time seeking to learn about transgenderism and gender identity. We educate ourselves formally and informally. We invite speakers, many of them experts in their fields, to discuss issues of interest. Some topics have been: family relationships, disclosure and coming out, choosing clothing and appropriate presentation, sexuality, spirituality, transitioning, reassignment surgery, the history and origins of Transgender / Gender Non-conforming people, and advocacy. More informally, we share what we have learned with each other. We help each other locate needed resources whether online, in print, or personal contacts, be they local, regional, or national.
