Intersex Support

XY-Turners genetic mosaic support group - Mixed Gonadal Dysgenesis is a condition caused by genetic mosaicism, usually xy/xo. Ordinarily xy results in a male and xo results in a female with Turner's Syndrome. About 90 per cent of xy/xo children have an apparently normal male body shape at birth. About 5 per cent have a female body shape and about 5 per cent have ambiguous genitals.

Gender identity problems are extraordinarily common in xy/xo even in those born with apparently normal male genitals. Since doctors rarely order a karyotype for children with gender identity problems some of our members were misdiagnosed for years. This matters because all xy/xo patients are at risk for heart and kidney problems.
Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome Support Group (AISSG) UK - The Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome Support Group (AISSG) is a peer information/support organisation established in 1988 (formalised in 1993). We are completely autonomous but are affiliated to the Genetic Interest Group (GIG) and Contact a Family. We help adults and families affected by XY intersex conditions such as AIS, XY gonadal dysgenesis (Swyer's syndrome) and 5 alpha reductase deficiency, and also XX females with Mayer Rokitansky Kuster Hauser (MRKH syndrome, Mullerian dysgenesis/aplasia, vaginal atresia etc. We have branches in Germany, USA, Canada, S. Africa and Australia.

Personal Pages

Gender Tree this just happens to be my web and is a help web. I am unabashedly Christian and much of the web has to do with Christian issues. The largest section is however humor. I also cover historical, cultural and philosophical issues. 

Diane Wilson This is a good site full of rich writing. It not only has excellent resources about being transgendered, but has writings of trans-woman after her transition and those writings show that we are people inside who have become whole.
