Transgender families: marriage, parenthood and children

Transgender family is a family where at least one person has come out as being transgender: the child, one or even both of the parents, etc.

Here is a systematized overview of the status of transgender families around the world. Its scope encompasses the details of legal regulations in different countries, remarkable court cases and positions of international organizations on the status of such families, social studies among the families experiencing gender transition, and, naturally, voices of the people in the trans community.

The information is presented in three sections: trans relationships and their regulation (Trans marriage), trans people’s right to have a child and possibilities for its upholding (Trans parents), and the situation of children expressing transgender features (Trans children).
