The positive impact of programs he has founded for teens and children is unparalleled. As an educator, author, speaker, and organizer, Aidan’s work has helped countless families with trans children, professionals working with trans patients and clients, and trans adults. Aidan founded the Gender Odyssey conference, the Gender Odyssey Family conference, and GO Professional Seminar for professionals and providers. Aidan has the largest network of support groups in the nation at Seattle Children’s Hospital for parents of transgender and gender non-conforming children. These groups are now an integral part of the Seattle Children's Gender Clinic. To support the work of all these trailblazing trainings and support groups, he founded Gender Diversity: Education and Support Services and serves as the organization’s director.
