Being partnered or married to someone who identifies as transgender or gender questioning brings its own unique set of experiences.  Questions, concerns, joys, excitement can come up, and it seems like no one around you understands.  You need a place to safely speak your mind, get support, get answers to questions about how others are navigating this experience.  You're welcome to join this monthly support group to find connection, community, support and understanding.
