FTMInternational Board Member Rev. Alexander Yoo MA MFTI facilitates the Families of FTMs Support Group sponsored by FTMInternational.

As the father of an intersex son and an intersex daughter and a former pediatric endocrinology clinical chaplain, FTMI President Levi Alter is often asked to counsel the families of young adult FTMs and boys whose families are considering adolescent hormone blockers such as Lupron and Tamoxifen and male hormone therapy for a normal puberty. FTMI sponsors the list FTM_International_ AFLOAT for "Allies, Friends, Loved Ones, and Tribe," the partners, parents, children, families, and friends of FTM for support and discussion unique to their experiences and needs. Levi has presented on the care of intergender and transgender infants, children and youth for numerous graduate programs, medical schools and hospitals.
