With the increased media attention to folks like Laverne Cox and Caitlyn Jenner, we've all been reading lots of stories about transgender folks lately. But let's face it, most of us would probably feel pretty unprepared and lost if we had to educate someone who knew nothing about issues related to transgender Oregonians. That's why we want to help. Join us for a fun, informative, and welcoming educational event to learn and ask questions about being transgender: What's the T? Learning About the Transgender Experience Sunday, April 10, 4-5:30 p.m. Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Salem 5090 Center St. NE, Salem, OR 97317 This FREE event is best suited for those who want to learn more about the transgender experience and do not identify as transgender. All are welcome to attend! http://www.facebook.com/events/212106345811446/
