Gender Spectrum Panel
March 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
There is no way one way to be trans. This panel brings together 3 individuals who have a variety of gender identities that fall under the trans* umbrella: transgender, genderqueer, nonbinary, or otherwise gender variant. Hear about their professional experience working with trans* people and personal experiences being part of the trans* community.
