March 24: Trans Awareness with Jaime Collins and Randi Hagen
The “T” in LGBTQ+ stands for transgender. Unlike the L (lesbian), G (gay), and B (bi-sexual), which deal with sexual orientation (whom one is attracted to), transgender involves gender identity (the internal sense of who one is). Transgender people have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from the sex they were assigned at birth. Jaime and Randi will share their stories and journeys of self-discovery in order to live as their authentic selves in a world that is not always accepting of them.
