Aidan Key, E.D.
Gender Diversity increases the awareness and understanding of the wide range of gender variations in children, adolescents, and adults by providing family support, building community, increasing societal awareness, and improving the well-being for people of all gender identities and expressions. We fulfill our mission by offering support for families of trans youth, training schools and other youth-focused agencies, and hosting a national conference, called Gender Odyssey, for families, trans people, providers, and the community at-large.
Consultations for parents and providers available by appointment.
Parent Support groups available online (in person groups for the Seattle, WA area)
Annual conference held each summer in August
OMG... I believe my kid is alive today because I found this guy and his support groups. About a month after my kid 'came out', I learned about Aidan. I had a 90-minute telephone consultation with him that just seemed to set the earth back on its axis. I had no idea what was going on or how I was going to deal with what my kid was telling me. After talking to Aidan and his intake person, I knew it was all going to be okay. Maybe it wouldn't all be easy, but it would be okay. I would be okay. My kid was going to be okay. And I wasn't the only parent trying to figure this out. I've also had the chance to attend a couple of his trainings at schools. He really knows how to put the most skeptical and nervous people in the room at ease. It's pretty impressive.
