Extractions: Based on the report of this Women Working Group, the European Forum decided in October 1997 to continue the work on these issues and to give it a more formalised structure.

Gay, Transgendered, Or Both? A PFLAG brochure. What is the relationship between sexual orientation and gender identity? How does one determine if a child or teen is gay or transgendered? Do parents of gays need to understand transgender issues? http://www.critpath.org/pflag-talk/gid2.htm
Extractions: PFLAG Transgender Special Outreach Network What is the relationship between sexual orientation and gender identity? How does one determine if a child or teen is gay or transgendered? Do parents of gays need to understand transgender issues? As an example, suppose that a 15 year old teenager attends a PFLAG support group meeting. The teenager is dressed in male attire, has adopted the mannerisms of a male, and uses a name which is androgynous and is different from the "female" name given at birth. The teen identifies as being lesbian. Afterwards, many at the support group say they were surprised that the teen was a lesbian because they thought she was a boy. Is this teen lesbian or transgendered? Is there a way for us to determine this? As another example, imagine that an 18 year old teenager attends a support group for gay and lesbian teens and reveals that he feels like a woman and wants to live as a woman and begin hormone therapy. The teenager "came out" to his parents as being gay when he was 12 and began getting harrassed from peers at school for being gay. From the time the child is 12 until he is 18 he thinks he is gay and identifies as being gay. No one in the support group indicates that they are concerned that the child may be transgendered and may benefit from receiving information about transsexualism.

Extractions: This site, developed by the Women in the Information Age Project at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, aims to address these issues by drawing together a representative collection of quality sites that add value to this discussion. The sites referred to in this website come from academia, industry and private individuals. But the common denominator is that they contain relevant and timely information relating to women's involvement in the burgeoning world of information technology. Starting with the experiences of young children, they trace young women's technological exposure through education to the workplace and out to cyberspace. And they also touch on the treatment of these issues in the law and in key policy documents. In time, we intend for this site to actively create a community of researchers, managers and policy-makers with an interest in this issue. To this end, we seek your feedback and comments - please click on the "About WITIA" tab, at left, to contact us. President and Fellows of Harvard College
