A Day of Learning: Community Conversation about Transgender Youth

Monday, May 1st
6:30 pm

What does it mean to be young and transgender?

Please join us for a reading of the children’s book I Am Jazz, and a conversation to help increase awareness and understanding around this topic.

There will be time for discussions, questions, and information you can take home.

This is a family friendly event; children are encouraged and welcome.

The event is co-organized by the OHS chapter of Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA).

Questions? Talk to Kelly at kallen@oregonlibrary.org or 608-835-6265.
