Narwhal Magic Kindness was created by two-cisgender parents who, at the time, were looking for information, resources, and a community to help their family support their child’s journey to becoming her true, authentic self.
It all started at the kitchen table. Together with their child, they made affirming ornaments to hang around their home, connected with others in the community via social media, and dreamt up stories about a world that empowers all types of people. They soon learned that these simple things were so empowering for their child. They began attending conferences and amazing LGBTQIA events up and down the east coast. Slowly they began to find community.
Over the years, this community has become the basis for Narwhal Magic Kindness. It continues to provide resources and support to parents, family members, and caregivers who might be new on their journey.
Today, based on some incredible love and support, NMK is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. As we walk through this process, we will continue doing the hard work of shedding light on the diversity in our world and celebrating our differences.
It is the mission, duty, and purpose of Narwhal Magic Kindness Inc. to empower transgender and gender-diverse people and to educate the broader community on the beauty of diversity in the gender mosaic.
Through our work and resources, NMK strives to become an organization that is seen as a vital resource for parents, caregivers, educators, and employers. We believe education is empowerment and can be harnessed to create safe spaces for transgender, non-binary, and gender-expansive people. As we move towards non-profit status, we believe that each person and their uniqueness is as essential as each tile in a great mosaic masterpiece. The world would not be as beautiful without each of us—our stories and uniqueness.
