Fenway Health (formerly Fenway Community Health Center, then Fenway Community Health) held their annual “T-Social” event tonight at Club Café -- a health fair and more for the local transgender commmunity. And it lived up to its press:
“Fenway's annual T (Trans) Social is an action-packed party for trans folks and their allies. Whether you're FTM, MTF, Gender Queer, Intersex, a Cross-Dresser, a SOFFA, someone who crosses mainstream gender boundaries, or just a friend -- please join us for an evening of camaraderie, fun and support. Meet new friends and stand with a vibrant, diverse culture. There will be food, entertainment, prizes and good people. This event is 18+ and is free and open to the public. This event is not a fundraiser, it is a time for community support and networking. RSVPs appreciated but not required. For more information please call Alex Solange of Fenway’s Transhealth Navigation Program at 617.927.6449 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.”
I was particularly impressed by how few people I knew, even by sight – a rare pleasant surprise.
I staffed the Keshet and ICTE information table, conveniently (for me and all) located between the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) and AIDS Project Worcester tables.
