Transgender people come from every region of the United States and around the world, from every racial and ethnic background, and from every faith community. They are your classmates, your coworkers, your neighbors, and your friends. With approximately 1.4 million transgender adults in the United States—and millions more around the world—chances are that you’ve met a transgender person, even if you don’t know it.
Join us for an important panel discussion with members of our local community to help further an understanding of this important and timely issue.
Panelists will include: H. Matthew Francis, a transgendered male, whose book, My Resurrected Spirit, and Local Access talk show, “Diversity Dignified”, have brought hope and inspiration, understanding and acceptance, to the widest demographic of both straight and LGBTQ+ communities; Amy Boston, Faculty Advisor to the Falmouth High School Gay/Straight/Transgender Alliance, will discuss the ways in which the schools are addressing the needs of transgender students; and more.
The best way to understand what it is to be transgender is to talk with transgender people and listen to their stories.
