Transgender in Faith Communities

Join us for discussion panel on transgender issues, especially how being transgender affects our life in relationship with our faith and acceptance/involvement in places of worship.

This forum is for family, friends and allies of transgender individuals. All are invited and encouraged to attend this free educational event.
