They use a framework that affirms gender non-conforming children, youth, and adults, as well as the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ+) community. The best part of what Tavi does is celebrating a person's growth and witnessing their courage as they create the kind of life they've been hoping for.
