About

Our Mission

The mission of He She Ze and We is to Support, Educate, Advocate and Empower families to navigate the complex journey of gender identity.


He She Ze and We is an inclusive community comprised of parents, caregivers, and loved ones of transgender and non-binary individuals of all ages, with the majority being youth. 

We are dedicated to supporting families throughout their journey with gender identity in Richmond, Virginia and surrounding communities. He She Ze and We was initially formed in 2012 as a group for parents of young gender-expansive children.  

Very quickly, the need to expand was clear to include families with transgender and/or non-binary loved ones of ALL AGES.  Now, He She Ze and We has increased services to meet the needs of the families of the transgender and/or nonbinary community in partnership with other organizations like Side by Side. 

Together, we are working to empower and support the whole family!
