Genspect is an international alliance of parent and professional groups whose aim is to advocate for parents of gender-questioning children and young people. Parents are concerned that their kids are not receiving appropriate treatment and support; many do not feel free to speak out about their concerns.
We’re not just speaking for a few. We speak for thousands.
A lot of parents worry about the undue influence of gender theory on educational and medical institutions working with young people. For many parents, this is not a philosophical debate: their children have been very badly impacted by the denial of the significance of biological sex, promoted by gender theory.
At best, this unscientific stance is reinforcing regressive sex stereotypes and eroding female safe spaces. At worst, it’s guiding some of the most vulnerable towards medically and surgically altering their bodies. We’re campaigning for informed decisions that prioritize long-term health.
We want to provide a platform for a more honest and open conversation.

We lobby politicians, journalists, clinicians and educators, helping them understand the complexity of identity development.
We offer webinars for parents, where they can share ideas with some of the world’s leading specialists in gender.
We generate working relationships between parents and clinicians, helping connect the science to the real stories.
Build a movement
We unite thousands of parents from hundreds of disparate support groups, so that they can speak with one voice.
There are thousands of parents whose children are questioning their gender. Many of these mothers and fathers just don’t believe their kids are getting the right information. In other cases, young people have come to identify once again with their biological sex: parents want those stories to be heard, too. Our parent testimonials share a handful of these stories.
Genspect is uniting parent groups from all around the world. The money we raise will help us to run campaigns and meet our overheads, so we can work to get these families’ stories into the mainstream media. We’re officially angry, and it’s time for us to act. Help us to help you.
