Understanding Gender Identity and Supporting Trans Youth and Their Families.
Deepen your understanding about gender identity and what it means to be transgender, non-binary, gender queer, and more. Janna Barkin, author of He’s Always Been My Son, will join us to share her experiences as the parent of her transgender son, and will facilitate a conversation about gender pronouns, the language of gender, and why it is so important for transgender people to have the love and support of their families, friends, and communities. Included in the discussion will be some of the adjustments family and friends may be asked to make, and Janna’s top tips to help folks make the shift away from struggle toward understanding, acceptance, and even celebration.

Janna’s book He’s Always Been My Son- a mother’s story about raising her transgender son, (Janet Kingsley Publishers, 2017) is a memoir of her family's challenges and joys in having a transgender child and will educate and inspire anyone who reads it.
