As a queer parent of transgender children, Tammy Plunkett knows all too well the overwhelming amount of learning that comes with understanding gender diversity. When her first child came out, she messed up pronouns, secretly lived with fear and doubt, and went through a grieving process for the child and future she thought she knew.
Today, Tammy helps other parents, caregivers and organizations that interact with youth and families understand how they can affirm the gender and sexuality-diverse people in their personal and professional lives. The goal is happy children, connected families, and a strengthened community.
Tammy is a certified life coach with a Global DEIB Strategy certificate, the author of the book Beyond Pronouns: The Essential Guide for Parents of Trans Children, and a speaker who began her career as a registered nurse. She volunteered on the board of directors with Airdrie Pride for over five years, where she launched a peer-led support group. Her freelance work has appeared in Today’s Parent and LGBTQ Nation, and she’s appeared on national television on The Doctors, Breakfast Television, The Social and The Marilyn Denis Show.
