Wanted to add that there is a pretty active yahoo group for people who are trans/genderqueer/etc and their partners who are parenting or TTC. PM me if you want the info on how to sign up!

|Sometimes I feel a little bit stuck between my own politics around being out, and my equally firm politics against outing anyone else! Plus, as a femme, I get so sick of being invisible as queer without having a visibly queer partner. On the other hand, I feel like I'm always learning and developing new ways to use my passing-as-het privilege to effect change, yk?|
|People who don't know my history think I am this incredibly hip straight person who surrounds herself with queer folk and fights for their rights. And that has it's benefits for the struggle, yk?|
