Two New Community Facebook Groups

A community member has set up a pair of Facebook page to address a need they've found in the community. The first one, Supportive Transgender Couples, is for couples where one or both individuals are transgender or non-binary and in a healthy relationship. It's required that both partners join.

The other page is Supportive Spouses/Partners of Transgender Individuals and is just for the spouses and partners of transgender and non-binary individuals.
