Greater Boston PFLAG Announces Joanne Herman Author Transgender Explained Thursday, Oct. 27 at 7pm Temple Shir Tikva Wayland
Greater Boston PFLAG invites you to join us on
Thursday, October 27
7 to 9 pm at Temple Shir Tikva
141 Boston Post Road, Wayland, MA 01778
Free and open to all! Light refreshments available.
We are thrilled to introduce our Featured Speaker:
Joanne Herman, Author, Transgender Explained
Since her transition to live as a female in 2002, Joanne Herman has been active as a spokeswoman for transgender awareness and understanding. Joanne is the first transgender person ever elected the Boards of Directors of Fenway Health, Point Foundation, and GLAD, the first transgender member of historic Old South Church in Boston, and one of the first openly transgender alumnae of Dartmouth College as a graduate of Dartmouth's last all-male class.
Joanne Herman has received praise for her non-complicated explanations of transgender for almost a decade. Now she has written down her explanations for all to read in Transgender Explained For Those Who Are Not. Organized by topic into short, easy-to-read chapters, Transgender Explained is perfect for parents, relatives, colleagues, friends, allies, and even journalists who want to quickly get up to speed on what it means to be transgender.
You will also have the opportunity to hear from parents with transgender children who will share their personal experiences and talk about Greater Boston PFLAG's support group for parents with transgender children.
Finally, you will have the opportunity to take action and support the transgender rights bill.
We look forward to seeing you!
