Media Enquiries

We are keen to represent the views of our members and welcome media enquiries.

Our members are loving and supportive parents who are sceptical about ‘affirmative’ treatment of their children’s gender problems. We would like all options to be explored before resorting to experimental pharmaceutical interventions and surgeries, with their risks, unknowns and life-long burdens. ‘Affirmative’ approaches in school encourage our vulnerable children to view their psychological and developmental challenges within a framework of social justice, unhelpfully making difficult feelings something to address by campaigning for and enforcing rights, rather than careful therapeutic exploration.

Contact us at:

We can comment on the record on topics such as mental health, autism, the impact on families, CAMHS, NHS gender clinics, the Cass Review and school policies.
