For Almost a decade, F.I.C.C.S has provided a safe space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) youth in Metro Atlanta, LGBTQ youth and their allies engage in social support, community service, arts & cultural activities, and educational, and leadership opportunities.
We strive to ensure all youth around metro Atlanta are safe from discrimination and harassment, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression.
F.I.C.C.S is here to help youth wherever they are in their journey to find their true selves. For transgender youth, F.I.C.C.S has a position statement on this journey.
“Because gender identity and gender expression are matters of individual self-determination, F.I.C.C.S provides programs, spaces, and other resources to help youth explore and discern these aspects of identity.
F.I.C.C.S does not advise minors on whether, when, and how to transition. Rather it encourages them, as well as their parents and guardians, to seek guidance from licensed medical and mental health professionals in alignment with the Standards of Care promulgated by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), the American Psychiatric Association’s DSM-5, and other leading authorities.”
