Being Youth and Transgender
Being a transgender person comes with a lot of challenges and problems. Young people, especially, experience many setbacks and stigma due to their diverse-gender status. These challenges result from how they are perceived in the family, society, and the community at large. The unfavourable treatments of transgender individuals in society are responsible for their mental and emotional instability. These harsh treatments have subjected many young people to an unproductive lifestyle.
Therefore, it is necessary that certain measures are put in place to ensure that these individuals are supported and protected. Their protection will enhance the trust they have in themselves. It will help these young minds to feel safe in society. It will encourage them to take an active part in matters that concern them.
Adopting a support service for young transgender people will improve their mental and emotional conditions significantly. It will also improve and promote their relationship with family members, friends, and society in general. The Gender Center is at the helm of providing these support services to every individual going through trauma or stigma for being transgender.
