Be True 2 Me is a new Johannesburg-based support group for gender diverse people (transgender, non-binary, non-conforming or questioning). Partners, spouses and cisgender allies as well as parents of gender diverse children are also welcome to attend meetings. Furthermore, the group plans to have conversation evenings open to wider audiences, including professionals.
Be True 2 Me meets in Forest Town (near the Johannesburg Zoo) every second Wednesday and for a social once every quarter.
The group can be contacted in the following ways:

South Africa's Own Practice Guidelines For Psychology Professionals Working With Sexually And Gender-Diverse People
After a number of years in the making the Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA) has released Practice Guidelines For Psychology Professionals Working With Sexually And Gender-Diverse People. These are the first of their kind in South Africa and hold the potential to make a massive difference to many people's lives.
It was an honour to be involved in the development of this important document as "subject specialist".
The guidelines can be downloaded for free from the PsySSA Website.
