Parenting a gender variant child is not an easy task.  Information in this regard in Italy and many other countries is still rather limited. At a national level, very few centers and specialists are in charge of supporting families. If we add to this a rather hostile cultural context, certainly the resulting prospect is rather bleak. However, it is important not to feel defeated and to consider that what is happening to your gender variant child has already been experienced by many other parents both in Italy and abroad and that, although not easily accessible or particularly visible, there are people who you can count on and who can help in this circumstance.
