ROCHESTER, Minn.- A community organization is teaming up with the Rochester Public Library to host a pride picnic for residents.
Transforming Families is an organization that offers support to transgendered and gender nonconforming youth across the state.
The picnic was held to show that there are resources for families struggling with raising a transgendered child.
Nicole Vanderheiden is with the organization.
She tells me in Rochester they're aren't a lot of resources for parents to go to.
She hopes to give parents a better understanding of raising a trans child.

“So important for friends and family to come around and be a support and be a place that embraces those trans folks and their true identity and their authentic selves,” said Vanderheiden.
