Distinction is a support organisation which is aimed at helping people who want to or who are supporting their partner that is Transgender, Non Binary or Gender Fluid.
Having been there, we know that as your partner changes, so do you. Your partner’s changes can have significant impact on you and that’s what we are here for, we are here to help and support, we will hold you up while you get on with the important job of keeping your relationship together.
We are an international group of supportive partners who support each other while we support our partners.
Distinction is a support organisation started in 2014 and is a network made up of many supportive partners aimed at supporting other partners of Trans/Non-Binary people who want to support their partner. We give them a safe space to discuss and share personal feelings.
Supporting the partners of transgender people is essential because we are often entirely forgotten about (or deliberately excluded) and very often we feel like we are the only person in the world that are going though this. Having no one to confide in or to support us who really can understand how we are feeling can make it very difficult for our relationships to survive. Having been though it, we know that as your partner changes, so do you and your partner’s changes can have significant impact on you. That is what we are here for, we are here to help, we will hold you up and support you while you get on with the important job of keeping your relationship together. We are here to hold your hand, to be your friend, listen when you need to talk and also answer questions based on our own experiences. We do this through a private group on Facebook – the conversations will show up in your news feed but only other members of the group will be able to see that you are a member and what you have contributed to the group. It is important that that the group is a safe, private space.
