You’ve probably been hearing the word “transgender” recently. Do you really know what it means? Here’s your chance to learn.
Join Jill Celentano for a comfortable and informal presentation to learn what it means to be transgender. This presentation will take place at Milford Public Library, 57 New Haven Ave. on February 23 at 11 am. In case of bad weather, the presentation will be held on March 2 at 11am. Jill will discuss the coming out process, the transition process, the acceptance process, plus right and wrong questions to ask other transgender people.
