Gender & Sexuality Advocacy and Education Program (CGSAEP) - Parent On-line Group

An electronic list serve is a closed email distribution list that permits a member to exchange emails with all the group members at the same time. List-serve members can post and read messages from other parents and moderators. The list-serves work as virtual support groups.

The Children’s Gender and Sexuality Advocacy and Education Program moderates two electronic list-serves for:
  • Parents of boys and girls
  • Parents of girls

Only invited members can access the list serves, and only parents are admitted. Interested parents are required to participate in a confidential telephone interview before joining the list-serve. Please contact the child and adolescent psychiatrist at Children's, Edgardo Menvielle, MD at 202 476-5158 or by e-mail at

For more information you can go to the Frequently Asked Questions page. You can also find out more by reading selected quotes and inspiring stories from Members of our Parent List-serve discussions.
